Minister whose stance mirrors HMT’s terms for Sir Amyas Morse is accused of mistaking ‘normal families’ for ‘political lobbyists.’

First sign of green shoots springs up amid freezes; uncertainty and competition.

Taxman lifts the covid-19 hold on investigations, despite only ‘a review’ in place for rejected furlough claims.

To furlough or not to furlough? That’s the question troubling contractors, and brollies.

Forget COVID, it’s actually IR35 that will cause PSCs severe (administrative) headaches.

It’s had devastating effects, but coronavirus is now being beaten back by humans, and governments, being understanding.

By not including the public sector, the IR35 resolution risks insulting covid-19’s ultimate risk-takers.

Taxman showing his flexible side with a three-month break isn’t to be sniffed at.

Never in its 22-year history has a gauge of IT contractor demand sank so far into the red.

Freelancer Financials homes in on Rishi Sunak’s coronavirus help for householders. But as it’s from the chancellor, it’s not free.

It’s a debt you’ve got to pay back. But for some contending with covid-19, the new BBL scheme will be a lifeline.

Simon Dolan to take the government to court over the UK's coronavirus shutdown.

Pandemic isn’t cause to pause pressing disguised remuneration customers to pay what we say they owe, taxman signals.

Get the bill passed quickly while not insulting ‘switched on’ peers? Seems like a no-brainer for the government.

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

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

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

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

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.’
