Whitepaper & Webinars

In the Autumn 2018 budget, it was confirmed that the legislation would be extended to the private sector in April 2020, for large and medium-sized organisations. 

These legislation changes mean that the responsibility for determining whether or not an off-payroll worker falls in or outside of IR35 will now sit with the hiring organisation, including potential liability for tax and national insurance contributions.

We have a dedicated IR35 page to give you all the information you need during these legislation changes.
