IR35 – Are you ready?

Are you a contractor providing services through a personal service company, or do you engage contractors via intermediaries? Then please join us on 10th March to get a clear overview on how prepare for changes to the Off- Payroll Working Rules, coming into force on 6 April 2021.

Whether you’re in the public or private sector, it’s critical that you carefully assess whether the contractor would have “deemed employment status” with the organisation to avoid potential penalties from HMRC for unpaid tax and national insurance contributions.

The rules and processes may seem complex, but it’s essential that you clearly understand them. Not just from a tax point of view, but also from an employment and contractual law perspective: it’s an opportunity to sort out your terms of engagement with contractors, and is essential training for any organisation, so is not to be missed.

The online session will be delivered by our experienced employment lawyers, David Sheppard (Senior Associate) and Rebecca Mahon (Solicitor). It will be followed by a short Q&A session to allow attendees to ask any question they may have.

Who should attend?

  • Employers from all sectors
  • Contractors
  • HR professionals
  • Finance Directors
  • Payroll managers

What will be included in the session

  • A clear, quick-fire and jargon-free explanation of the new IR35 rules
  • What the new rules mean for your organisation, and practical steps which need to be taken now
  • A summary of the latest cases regarding employment status, both in employment and tax law and future trends
  • A comparison of the pros and cons of engaging contractors and employees for the new tax year and beyond
