IR35: Extension to the Private Sector
Updated: Jan 23, 2019
So, unless you've been under a rock since the Autumn statement you'll know that the IR35 rules currently in force in the Public Sector are going to be extended, in the most part, to the private sector from April 2020. The detail of exactly how that will happen is yet to be determined with yet another HMRC Consultation promised for the early part of this year.
What we have got, however, are some very interesting, and in some cases surprising, results from dealing with the public sector changes to the widely criticised legislation, alongside some useful case law in the form of MDCM, Jensal Software and of course the high profile Christa Ackroyd case which caused the BBC major panic over its engaging of top talent and its wider use of service providers.
We're working with clients to assess, quantify and categorise risk within the whole supply chain, of which there can be some surprises due to fragmentation and a lack of transparency. Following this exercise, decisions can be made to ensure that resourcing is fit for purpose, engaged and paid correctly.
Call us to find out how we can help you and your clients negotiate the best outcomes and opportunities that arise from the changes to legislation.
