IR35 - Off Payroll Working - a Reminder!

We recently posted a note about HMRC's briefing paper which contains their latest update about reforms to off-payroll working rules (IR35 to you and me) and what organisations (and contractors) should do to get ready for April 2020.  M&S Accountancy & Taxation has written several blogs for a number of organisations from London to Edinburgh on this subject which we know have had hundreds of page views.

As you almost certainly know, off-payroll working rules apply where a worker provides services through an intermediary, such as their own personal services company and they are designed to make sure that workers who would be employees if they were providing their services directly to the client, pay the same tax and National Insurance as those employed directly by the company.  This is a contentious issue for many and according to some recent research it appears that many in the industry don't know precisely what is involved.

Consequently, it's worth reminding anyone who might be affected by these changes to check out the official HMRC advice, which you can find here:
