IR35 – Reminder of important changes from 6 April 2021

Reforms to off-payroll working rules in the private sector were due to take effect in April 2020 but were delayed as businesses grappled with the coronavirus crisis. The changes were implemented in April 2021.

IR35, also known as the ‘off-payroll working rules’ is tax legislation designed to combat tax avoidance by people who work in a similar way to full-time employees but bill for their services via their limited companies to make their business more tax efficient.

The legislation is designed to prevent workers from avoiding tax by operating as contractors, when really, they are employees in all but name.
