The proposed reforms to IR35 could have wide-reaching implications on contractors working in the public sector. Do you know how it might affect you?
As many people are aware, the Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond’s Autumn Statement contained confirmation of planned reforms to IR35.
Section 5.2 of the Autumn Statement contains the following passage:
"Off-payroll working rules – Following consultation, the government will reform the off-payroll working rules in the public sector from April 2017 by moving responsibility for operating them, and paying the correct tax, to the body paying the worker’s company."
These reforms will have a direct impact on limited company contractors working in the public sector once they come into effect in April 2017. Because of this, our recruiters have a very keen interest on the outcomes and their impact on the industry.
