IR35 - Are you prepared? - Liverpool Seminar - 20 February 2020

IR35 - Are you prepared?

From 6 April 2020 IR35 is changing. Under the new IR35 rules your business may have a new responsibility to make an assessment about whether the contractors you engage are caught by the IR35 off-payroll working rules for the private sector. If they are they should be paid through PAYE. From the date of the new rules, if you have a relationship with a contractor that has 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.

We will be joined by Giant Group who will discuss the practical options you have and how you may deal with them.

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.

Registration will be at 11am. The seminar will begin at 11.30am and close by 1pm, followed by a buffet lunch.
