Helping you understand and navigate IR35
Find out more
The Intermediaries Legislation, known more commonly as IR35, refers to a piece of tax legislation which came into effect from April 2000. Designed to prevent businesses using contractors and freelance workers as ‘disguised’ employees, the legislation focuses on compliance of off-payroll working.
In 2017, the government announced a significant change to the legislation whereby it was now the responsibility of public sector organisations to determine the IR35 status of contract engagements within their organisation. And from 6th April 2020, those IR35 rules applied to the public sector will now be extended to the private sector.
With only 153 working days between the 1st September 2019 and 6th April 2020, time is running out for organisations to ensure they are properly prepared. Having the time, resource and expertise to review all non-contractual working practices, engagement and management of your contingent workforce is a lofty task that many HR functions struggle to complete on their own. Not only that - but being able to fully audit and assess the impact on your existing flexible workforce, the roles you are recruiting for now and anticipated future skills requirements is also hugely complex and time-consuming to carry out.
