Like officialdom, advisers to contractors are trying to break down the ‘complex’ CJRS.

It’s too long a way back for many engagers so, perversely, it’s the unprepared who are now unburdened.

Treasury confirms that CJRS will include PSC workers, but exclude their dividends.

Nominations open to suppliers supporting contractors after a turbulent year, with everything from COVID-19 to IR35 reform.

Assessing if the CJRS covers you isn’t easy. The hard truth is that PSCs may fall through the cracks.

Lack of financial help for limited company contractors facing COVID-19 isn’t being ignored at Lloyds.

It’s tempting to take the path of least taxation. But contractors have been here before.

Practical, protective steps for ContractorUK readers to take to avoid contracting COVID-19.

Amid a sense of ‘be careful what you wish for,’ practical concerns for PSCs (and their clients) now pervade.

Peers fume to tax officials that it’s ‘perverse’ not to defer off-payroll changes amid a 'catastrophic' pandemic.

What our niche staffing agency and our contractual partners are doing to combat the pandemic.

It doesn’t have to be ‘umbrellas or perish,’ assuming that us PSC-dependent providers take actions.

Sunak’s ‘contractor-friendly’ ER policy is balanced against the 'chaos, insult and decimation' of his off-payroll rules proceeding.

Coronavirus dominates the ‘Getting it done’ Budget, under which ER reduces and IR35 reforms from April.

All but certain that ‘inexperienced’ Rishi Sunak will remove ER; forge ahead with IR35 reform.

For PSCs who have to navigate it, chancellor Rishi Sunak’s Budget will probably be a traffic light.

Blanket assessed or banned? A new contractor campaign force is calling you to join the fight back today.
