twelve extra months…
Exactly where vocal protests from the UK’s sizable contractor local community unsuccessful, a pandemic has succeeded: Steve Barclay, chief secretary to the Treasury, this evening confirmed that reforms slated for April 6 which would make employers responsible for identifying the tax position of contractors have been delayed for twelve months.
Steve Barclay MP claimed: “The government is postponing the reforms to the off payroll doing work rules, IR35, from April 2020 to April 6, 2021. This is a deferral in reaction to the ongoing unfold of Covid-19 to support enterprises and persons.”
He additional: “This is not a cancellation and the government remains committed to reintroducing this coverage to be certain people doing work like staff but as a result of their own constrained business pay broadly the identical tax as those people employed immediately.”
#IR35 unquestionably delayed. Pretty wise move by government. It
