Off-payroll working – what is the impact of the small companies accounting regime?

30 July 2019

The legislative changes for off-payroll workers in the private sector will not apply to client end users who are small companies. For those, the current legalisation in Chapter 8 of ITEPA 2003 remains applicable. The size of the company (and in the case of a parent company, the size of the group headed by it) in terms of its turnover, balance sheet total and average number of employees determines whether it is classed as small.

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 2020. 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

30 July 2019

The transfer of liability provisions will form part of the new IR35 rules from 6 April 2020. 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 – status determinations and the status disagreement process

30 July 2019

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.

Off-payroll working – the perspective for individuals

30 July 2019

The Government believes the legislative changes will impact 170,000 individuals working through their own intermediary, such as a PSC. For these individuals, the deduction of tax and NI at source will have cash flow implications and, therefore, needs to be planned for.

What do individuals need to consider?
