Free webinar on how the Autumn Budget 2017 impacts contractors
On Wednesday 22nd November Chancellor Phillip Hammond delivered his Autumn Budget to parliament. Orange Genie and ContractorUK are running a free webinar to analyse the budget and how it impacts contractors.
Join Dan Moss, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Orange Genie, on December 1st at 1:30pm for in-depth commentary on the aspects that matter to you, including our advice on the best way to move forward, post budget.
Here are some of the topics he’ll cover during the webinar:
IR35 reform in the private sector
While Hammond made no mention of IR35 in his Budget speech, the Budget Report states that the government will “carefully consult on how to tackle non-compliance in the private sector”. So, what does this mean for the future of IR35, and for contractors like you?
Tax avoidance measures
The Chancellor has reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to anti-avoidance legislation and to stamping out non-compliance. HMRC are increasing compliance activity, having had some success in closing down disguised remuneration schemes. The consequences of getting involved in such a scheme can be very serious, so how can you protect yourself and your business?
Changes to tax thresholds
Increasing personal allowance and decreases planned to corporation tax, class 2 NICs survive for another year and the VAT threshold is frozen at £85,000. What does it all mean for your income, and how will it affect your strategy?
This will be a live webinar with a Q&A session at the end so you can ask any questions you have.
