24-hour protest against IR35 proposed
A national day of action against IR35 is being proposed by a campaigner.
“[At this early] planning stage”, he said “[the event involves] a march to the Houses of Parliament, a few speeches and a petition [delivered]….to 10 Downing Street.”
But another IR35 critic, Graham Fisher, thinks that despite a consultation on the extension being overdue (according to his forecasts), officials have likely already decided that it will go ahead.
“Our general view is that HM Treasury and HMRC are not accepting any evidence pointing to the public sector changes being anything other than a resounding success.
Fisher, who is managing director of accountants Orange Genie added: “In the unlikely event that they recognise the failure of the public sector implementation, any changes might be delayed to 2020.”
