WELCOME TO KINGSBRIDGE

Say hello to new beginnings with Kingsbridge

With the merger of the Larsen Howie and Kingsbridge brands, we’ve retained all of the attributes that you have come to value; a high standard of service, in-depth knowledge of insurance and IR35, and decades of industry experience.
From welcoming some of the UK’s leaders in IR35 consultancy and employment status, to the Kingsbridge family to taking a vested interest in the contractor community, making sure you still benefit from Larsen Howie’s top offerings is our top priority.

What does this mean for Larsen Howie customers?  

Whether you’re an existing Larsen Howie customer, are due for a policy renewal, would like an IR35 review, or are simply after a quote, Kingsbridge is able to continue to serve and support you. If you need to make a claim on your existing Larsen Howie policy, you can find contact details back on the Larsen Howie site.

Existing customers that have an active Larsen Howie policy bought in the period prior to 15th May 2020 will still be covered until their policy expiry date. You’ll still be able to access your customer account via the Larsen Howie website, while our customer services team will make sure you’re taken care of. When your policy expiry date does roll around, Kingsbridge will be in touch with a renewal quote and to help you through the process.

We’re committed to matching Larsen Howie policy premiums while providing equivalent cover at the very minimum within our packaged products, meaning you’ll get an excellent deal if you choose to stay insured with us

Where can I get my business insurances? 

While you won’t be able to take out a new policy with Larsen Howie, Kingsbridge offers a comprehensive, competitive contractor insurance package to keep your business protected.


Alongside professional indemnity, public (and employers’) liability, personal accident insurance  directors’ and officers’ liability, and product liability both legal expenses and cyber liability are available as add-on products for further peace of mind. Our market-leading IR35 Protect product can also be purchased as a stand-alone product or an add-on to your PI policy. All of our products and policies come with a range of limits for tailored cover.

Will be able to get an IR35 contract review or employment status determination?

Larsen Howie will no longer offer IR35 contract and working practices reviews or status determination services from 15th May 2020. 

Any purchases made up to this date and any reviews outstanding after this point will be honoured. Kingsbridge does offer an IR35 employment status determination for free as part of our IR35 Protect product.

This status determination tool offers a ‘hybrid’ approach that nothing else on the market can claim, starting as a set of automated working practices questions followed by a manual review if your initial result isn’t a clean ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ determination.

If you already have a Larsen Howie IR35 and tax liabilities insurance policy that you would like to cancel in favour of  our IR35 Protect product, or are interested in getting an employment status determination, please see the contact details at the bottom of this page. 

Are IR35 training and consultancy services still available? 

Any IR35 training, consultancy, and HMRC enquiry defence services will still be available through us. Both Head of Tax Andy Vessey and IR35 Consultancy Manager Matt Tyler are still working hard to ensure you’re prepared for the 2021 private sector IR35 reform and are contactable through Kingsbridge.

Andy Vessey is a qualified accountant, has defended over 500 employment status tribunals, and worked for many years as an HMRC inspector. Matt Tyler has worked with the IR35 legislation for almost a decade, has provided off-payroll training and process advice to government bodies like the DIT, and rose through the ranks at a big-name competitor before joining the Kingsbridge Group just over a year ago. Together with Kingsbridge’s Legal Manager Nicola Hayman, our IR35 offering has never been stronger
