Changes to off-payroll working - IR35

The Government confirmed that the off-payroll working rules (IR35) will be reformed from 6 April 2020. It’s important not to underestimate the impact of these changes and to start preparing for them now.

IR35 - The impact to the recruitment sector
David Williams-Richardson

The Government has confirmed that it intends to reform the off-payroll working rules (commonly known as IR35) from 6 April 2021. This change will impact the estimated 20,000 recruitment agencies who provide off-payroll workers via intermediaries, such as personal service companies (PSCs), to medium and large businesses in the private sector and to the public sector.

Off payroll workers – the liability transfer rules

24 March 2020

The transfer of liability provisions will form part of the new IR35 rules from 6 April 2021. Under the new IR35 rules, the liability for the tax, NIC, and (potentially) Apprenticeship Levy due under PAYE where IR35 applies, will pass down the labour supply chain as each party satisfies its obligations.

HMRC can potentially transfer those liabilities to an agency at the top of the labour supply chain or to the end-client, where there is non-compliance further down the labour supply chain and it is not possible for HMRC to collect the amounts due from the offending party.

Off-payroll working – the perspective for individuals

24 March 2020

Off payroll working – status determinations and the status disagreement process

24 March 2020

The draft legislation also confirms that end users of services via intermediaries, such as Personal Service Companies (PSC), will be required to make status determinations and pass these to both the worker and the fee payer.

Also, the end user client will be required to set up and lead a status disagreement process, which will increase the administrative burden for businesses.

Employer NIC deductions from contractors under IR35

23 March 2020

Following the introduction of the rules in the public sector in April 2017, some employers have tried to pass on National Insurance Contributions (NIC) (13.8%) and the Apprenticeship Levy (0.5%) costs to contractors. This is potentially unlawful.

Can you renegotiate contracts to include deductions for employer’s NIC?
