Preparing for IR35


From 6 April 2021 IR35 will be changing. Under the new 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 you have a relationship with a contractor that is caught by the IR35 off-payroll working rules, your business will be responsible for deducting income tax and National Insurance contributions from any payments made to that contractor. 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.

Date: Tuesday 16th March 2021 Time: 10:00am - 11:30am Venue: Zoom

In this webinar, partnered with Elevation RecruitmentTom Draper and Toby Pochron from the Sheffield employment team and Alex Angelides from the Sheffield tax team will be discussing:

  • Current law – how are different workers currently taxed
  • New rules – conditions, implications, enforcement and compliance
  • Employment law – what are the employment law implications of the new rules and how to minimise any legal risk
  • Practical considerations
