Partner Sue Dowling, head of our Employment Law team, introduces a series of blog articles on IR35 reforms and the implications for private sector (end-user) clients, contractors and intermediaries.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic taking hold last spring, planned reforms involving the IR35 tax regime, affecting private sector (end-user) clients, contractors and intermediaries, represented perhaps the most talked about topic among Employment lawyers and HR professionals. In February 2020, Blandy & Blandy partnered with national tax, advisory and risk firm, Crowe, to host a seminar on this ‘hot’ subject.
The pandemic saw the roll out of these changes delayed by a year, but the Finance Bill has, in the interim, received Royal Assent and the new reforms to the off-payroll (IR35) legislation for medium and large private sector clients will take effect from 6 April 2021.
In a series of upcoming employment focused blog articles, partner Sue Dowling, head of our Employment Law team, will examine the new IR35 Rules; and the practicalities and potential pitfalls for clients; contractors and intermediaries, from an Employment Law perspective.
These blog articles will cover:
- IR 35 - Understanding the Fundamentals
- Getting to Grips with the Terminology
- What is Changing in April 2021 for Private Sector (End) Clients?
- Looking at the Inter-Relationship Between Employment Status and IR35
- How does C.E.S.T. Operate?
- Obligations Relating to the Status Determination Statement
- Disagreements Over the Application of IR35 and Their Resolution.
