Below is an article we recently contributed to the Thames Valley publication, B4, on the off-payroll (IR35) working reforms for the private sector.
Since submission, the Government have released a follow-up consultation (link below) into the details of how they see IR35 in the private sector working in practice. This contains some potentially impractical suggestions for businesses so needs further thought.
More details about employment status and IR35 can be found on the Grant Thornton website: https://www.grantthornton.co.uk/en/services/tax/employer-solutions/employment-status/
It was always a matter of time until the public sector off-payroll working reforms (changes to the rules known as ‘IR35’) were extended into the private sector.
