IR35 – Are you prepared? Various Locations – 5th – 25th February

From April 2020 IR35 is changing. Under the new IR35 rules the onus will be on your business to make an assessment about whether the contractors you engage are caught by the IR35 off-payroll working rules. If they are they should be paid through PAYE. If you have existing relationships with contractors that have been incorrectly categorised your business could be liable for back-dated income tax and National Insurance contributions. If contractors have been incorrectly classed as self-employed then there could also be a possibility for back-dated holiday pay and national minimum wage claims under Employment Law.

We are holding a seminar to inform you of the incoming changes to the law around the taxation of off-payroll workers, known as IR35, which takes effect from April 2020. The seminar will assist you with the necessary preparations for compliance.

This will be of particular interest to: HR, Payroll Managers, Accountants, Self-employed Contractors, Recruiters and anyone involved in the labour supply chain.

Topics being covered in the seminar:

  1. Current law – how are different workers currently taxed
  2. New rules
    a. Conditions – who will be caught by the new rules
    b. Implications – what difference will the new rules make
    c. Enforcement – how will HMRC enforce the new rules
    d. Compliance – how to comply with the new rules
  3. Employment law – what are the employment law implications of the new rules and how to minimise any legal risk.

Leeds Office – Thursday 13th February

All seminars will run between 11:30am – 1pm and followed by a buffet lunch.
