Changes to IR35 in the Public Sector
Reforms to off-payroll working in the public sector will come into force on 6th April 2017, and as such our clients and contractors will have to prepare for these changes well in advance to avoid being forced into an inappropriate tax calculation, or from having the engagement forcibly ended on 31st March 2017. As part of the IR35 reform, the Adecco Group UK & Ireland have staged a number of seminars aimed at bringing our clients and contractors up to speed with the legislative changes, and to discuss how it may impact them.
Following the events roadshow, Katy Crothall, Operations Director stressed the importance of contractors and clients acting now: “We were delighted to host a number of IR35 centric events across the UK. Whilst the content is a challenge for us all, it was great to be able to have an open and honest discussion about the solutions and how we can work together to meet the deadline of the 6th April. We’ve also produced a raft of documentation and FAQs (below) aimed at contractors and clients, which cover the legislation in much more detail and answer most of those important questions.”
