Contractor or Employee? IR35 everything your business needs to know
Contractor or an Employee? It's time to find out...
For many years businesses have relied on "off-payroll" workers (contractors, consultants, freelancers etc.) as a feasible, and often cheaper, alternative to employees.
However, pending reforms to IR35 rules in the private sector, following their introduction to the public sector in 2017, mean that all businesses are having to reconsider whether these working relationships are likely to be classified as "disguised employment" by HMRC and indeed whether or not such working arrangements will continue to be financially viable from April 2020.
Following a number of recent high-profile court cases, HMRC is turning the screw on tax avoidance by Personal Service Companies (aka one-man bands) by shifting the responsibility for determining a contractor’s IR35 status to the end-client including the liability to operate PAYE when necessary.
This seminar will endeavour to explain all aspects of IR35. Everything from what IR35 is to the financial impact it could have on your business, no matter how small, ensuring you gain all the knowledge you need to take the necessary steps to prepare for HMRC's new regime.
Who is this for?
This course is suitable for anyone working as a contractor, consultant, freelancer or another form of subcontracted support for another organisation, and companies who are using a lot of external contractors etc. Understanding whether the relationship is Contractor or Employee is highly important and ignorance is no longer a defence.
