Contracting News

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.

Facing an eventual take-home dent of 40%, it’s reasonable for off-payroll ‘Ltd’ contractors to not limit their options.

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.

The Treasury’s ‘light-touch’ off-payroll pledge is getting a heavy amount of scrutiny.

The deadline to give peers your take on the off-payroll rules is imminent. Act now.

Are we all ready for the new IR35? Not according to HMRC’s straw poll on its latest webinar.

Paul wrote a short song and made a video all about IR35 reform.

‘Forget any soft landing, it’s enforcement action as necessary; prepared or not.’

It’s up to contractor-taxpayers to take ‘reasonable care,’ as blaming your accountant for being late won’t wash.

Determinations like 'all caught,' 'all banned' (and the like) aren’t being made -- minister.

‘More concerning’ than the banks’ actions, is defence companies making do without ‘highly-skilled’ PSCs.

Loud off-payroll march gives even the ‘tin-earned Treasury’ no excuse to say it hasn’t been warned.

A rushed resolution to the longstanding off-payroll issue is undesirable. The softest of soft landings isn’t.

‘Third consecutive month of IT contractor demand getting deeper into negative territory warrants a delay.’

‘Go with the facts about how off-payroll reform has upended you, so forget ‘it isn’t fair’ rhetoric.’

Despite the IR35 hype, and the Taylor Review fanfare, the SDM’s demise should be quite a quiet affair.

The former head of the National Audit Office is to be summoned over a review that’s left 40,000 contractors in the cold.

Only one word of difference in the minister’s secondary answer to two different probes about IR35 reform.

Given the PM’s ‘staggering’ disclosure, the end of the winding-up tax break looks like a case of ‘when not if.’

The initial drop-off in PSC numbers is projected to be significant, but so too is their resurgence.

What contractor recruitment leaders have told the chancellor about April’s off-payroll rules.

Engagers are getting covered to defuse the ticking time-bomb of you claiming for contributions.

How Lloyds are hitting us; hiking our taxes, eroding our bottom line and squeezing the life out of our business.

Making a few quick admin and accounting moves is how nimble consultancies can fight back against the banks’ IR35 overreaching.

Aside from reassurance about historical enquiries, HMRC’s last minute-materials won’t mean much to most.

With unwieldy HMRC changes imminent, curbing how to challenge a public body looks poorly timed.

Having been on the receiving end of the courts, the PM moves to restrict how IT contractors often fight.

Even seasoned PSCs can’t afford to chance it this tax return season.
