IR35 News

From April 6th 2017, IR35 status for Public Sector Contracting will be determined by the client, not the contractor.

For more information on these upcoming changes visit Public Sector Contracting. You can also have a look at what the contractors and industry experts are saying about it in our Public Sector IR35 Forum.

If you are unsure of your IR35 status you can get an IR35 contract review. You can also cover your tax and IR35 risks with IR35 insurance.

There is further IR35 information below.

Following on from the PCG's victory in yesterdays' initial High Court Judicial Review hearing, the Inland Revenue have been very muted in their response to the decision. At this time, the only official response seems to be in the form of a new 'FAQ' on the Inland Revenue website.

The Inland Revenue has publicly answered critics at a meeting hosted jointly by the London Society of Chartered Accountants and the ICAEW's Tax Faculty.

The Professional Contractors Group called for 'joined-up Government in practice' when Home Office Minister Barbara Roche recognised there was an 'international scramble to attract IT experts' in a speech on immigration policy on the same day (September 11) that the Prime Minister published the e-envoy's report with a commitment to monitor the effects of IR35.

The Inland Revenue have uploaded Sarah Walker's response to a recent article - 'Alice In Primarololand', written by Robert Maas from the ICAEW Tax Faculty for 'Taxation' magazine.

In a newly released document entitled 'Keeping Britain Competitive', the Tories have again criticised IR35 and have pledged to review and reform the legislation if they gained power. The publication stops short of a firm promise to abolish the legislation at some time in the future.
