With the introduction of updated IR35 tax legislation in the public sector in 2017 and its subsequent application to the private sector in April 2021, those hiring contractors may be impacted with high costs and unnecessary risk if they do not have the right processes in place.
Prior to the reforms coming into effect, we recorded a number of webinars to help you get equipped with the right knowledge to navigate the changes.

These sessions will help those organisations hiring contractors to understand what the IR35 reforms are, who is responsible for what within an organisation, how to assess risk and how to retain access to skilled contractors.

In the 2018 Autumn Budget, it was announced that changes to IR35 legislation will be extended to large and medium-sized organisations in the private sector from April 2020.
These legislation changes mean that the responsibility for determining whether or not an off-payroll worker falls in or out of IR35 is now with the hiring organisation, as is any liability for tax/NI contributions.
Private sector businesses who rely heavily on a non-permanent workforce should proceed immediately with plans to manage and implement the legislation; and public sector organisations will need to change their approach to deal with this as they continue to lose non-permanent talent to the private sector in the interim.
