Practical considerations of IR35

27th January 2021.
Prepare for the new Off Payroll Working “IR35” Regulations before they start on 6th April 2021.

With the introduction of the new legislation in the private sector for medium and large organisations fast approaching on 6 April 2021, it is crucial businesses do not leave it until the last minute to review their compliance, given the financial and reputational risks that could arise.

What is key to consider?

From feedback, many organisations have found it difficult to establish robust controls in managing this risk area given the complexities and variety of stakeholders involved. We have therefore been helping organisations get to grips with the practicalities and ensuring they can:

  • Identify which engagements may need to be considered further
  • Put in place clear controls and processes, setting out controls and responsibilities; and
  • Once identified, practically carry out a robust employment status determination to confirm how payment needs to be made.

This session was a practical discussion led by our Employment Tax team, exploring experiences on how organisations are navigating and managing their compliance with the new rules.

We were joined by Sheldon Brown, Senior Tax Policy adviser at the CBI, who provided a timely update and helped answer questions received.
