IR35 changes delayed to April 2021

Employment / 18 March 2020

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury announced last night that the proposed changes to IR35, which we have previously updated you on here and which were due to come into force on 6 April 2020, will be delayed for one year.

The delay forms part of the package of measures the Treasury announced yesterday to protect the economy from the coronavirus outbreak.

In difficult and uncertain times, this delay will be welcome news for employers.

If you have any queries in relation to the delay or any other employment issues do get in touch.
