On-demand video course covering the new IR35 legislation


IR35 timeline



Have you conducted an audit of your existing arrangements with PSCs and contractors (whether you engage them directly or through an agency)?

You need to.

The government is making you responsible for determining their IR35 status and your company liable for any subsequent taxes and penalties for making an incorrect employment status determination.

The 2018 Budget announced that “off payroll" rules are being extended to private sector businesses from April 2020. Payrollers, in medium and large private sector companies that engage these workers, will have responsibility for deciding each contractor’s status and making the required adjustments to tax and National Insurance.

HMRC estimates that only around 10% of people who should comply with the off-payroll working rules do so.

This course will help you prepare for the coming changes and avoid penalties and fines.

This course will be delivered via on-demand video training. Upon payment you will be given access to the online training which you can view as many times as you like.
