Tania Bowers, Global Public Policy Director, APSCo
We know the government is struggling to enforce IR35 in the courts, but end clients are starting to receive requests for information on their off payroll placements, so off payroll enforcement is incoming. With that in mind there are more regulations and guidance on calculating PAYE liabilities in cases of non compliance.
We will update you on current engagement we’re having with government on IR35 and also highlight issues in the regulations for your input.
We want to hear from you on want is happening in the market – are clients using off payroll contractors, do you trust their processes, is the new CEST platform an improvement, is consultancy increasing and does the supply chain know what genuine consultancy is? This will all help with our lobbying.
Please find a link to the draft document. Of course, you are also invited to respond directly by email to HMRC.
