IR35 – Are you ready?

Employment / 10 December 2020

With less than four months to go until the changes to the off-payroll working rules (known as “IR35”) come into force, now is the time to put your final preparations in place if you haven’t already done so.

The changes, which come into force on 6 April 2021, are complex and will have a significant impact on large and medium-sized organisations that engage contractors via intermediaries.  If your organisation falls into this category, the new rules are very likely to impact you.  Please see our earlier summary of the key issues here.

If you think your organisation may be affected by the proposals, you should take action now.  Our team of IR35 experts can assist and advise you in relation to auditing your contractor arrangements, minimising risk, putting in place the relevant documentation and helping you prepare.
