What is IR35?

Due to wide non-compliance with the IR35 rules, the government introduced reforms in the public sector in April 2017 – these are known as the “off-payroll rules”. The Chancellor announced in the Budget on the 29th October 2018 that the government will also reform the off-payroll working rules in the private sector. On 17th March 2020 the UK Government announced a 1-year delay to new IR35 Off-Payroll Working rules, in light of ongoing COVID-19 challenges and effects, the new implementation will take place from 6th April 2021 from this date, the liability for assessing IR35 status is no longer on the contractor’s intermediary but on the client.
