IR35 Advice to Clients & Interim Executives

Changes to off-payroll working – IR35

The Government confirmed that the off-payroll working rules (IR35) will be reformed from 6 April 2020. It’s important not to underestimate the impact of these changes and to start preparing for them now.

We are available to provide our view and professional opinion on IR35. Please call Nick Diprose on +44 (0)203 053 4438.

The Government’s Check Employment Status for Tax tool, CEST, has a key role to play in determining employment status. It does have its limitations and end-user companies of interim executive services should always build up a full picture. The report provided by the CEST tool is accepted by HMRC as an employment status determination.

We recommend that interim executives find out more from the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed (IPSE). They offer informative updates on IR35 and on being self-employed, together with other services including contract compliance. We can send you a link for reduced membership fees.

Clients seeking employment tax advice, including IR35, can contact our recommended partners RSM UK.
