IR35 - Government Delays Reforms Until 2021

Partner Sue Dowling, head of our Employment Law team, highlights the Government's announced delay of IR35 reforms.

On 17 March 2020, Chief Treasury Secretary Steve Barclay announced that the introduction of IR35 tax reforms would be delayed until next year.

The move comes just a week after the changes were included in the budget announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak and means that the changes will now come into force on 6 April 2021.

Mr Barclay said that the decision was “a deferral, not a cancellation, and the government remains committed to reintroducing this policy”. He explained that the move is among a range of measures the Treasury has announced to "protect the economy from the Coronavirus outbreak."
