IR35 – Understanding and Preparing for the Changes

IR35 was introduced by the Government to counter perceived tax avoidance where individuals were providing their services through an intermediary, such as a personal service company.


IR35 has a wide effect, and can catch out many innocent contractor relationships. Following a year’s postponement, these rules will extend to the private sector for the first time from 6 April 2021.  For affected contractors and those businesses using their services, there will be significant tax and practical consequences.  It is important that appropriate steps are taken before 6 April to ensure that the tax position – and the contractual/employment relationship – remain as intended.
