The Government’s confirmed lead option for change is to extend the public sector reform introduced in April 2017 to the private sector. How would this potential change impact the recruitment sector?
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.

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.
