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.

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.

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.
