After a last minute delay due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the new IR35 rules will come in to force on 6 April 2021. Under these new rules, your business may have a responsibility to assess whether the contractors you engage are impacted by the IR35 off-payroll working rules.
It will be vital that relationships are categorised correctly, an incorrectly categorised contractor could mean your business is liable for back-dated income tax and National Insurance contributions, or if a contractor has been wrongly categorised as self-employed, there could be a possibility for holiday pay and national minimum wage claims.
With less than 6 weeks before the changes come into effect for the private sector, have you assessed and categorised your contractor relationships correctly? This will be an essential webinar for businesses who previously put IR35 projects on hold, as well as a reminder for those who prepared for IR35 previously.
Employment Law specialist, Noele McClelland hosted a short webinar to discuss all of these points and answer attendee questions during this 1 hour webinar.
Topics covered included:
- Refresher of which employers this applies to
- The assesment and what factors come into play
- What to do if someone challenges an assessment
- IR35 and employment status
