IR35 aims to tackle the situation where a contractor who provides their personal services to an end user via an intermediary (most often a personal service company) is in reality an employee for tax purposes. In the private sector, it has traditionally been the contractor’s responsibility to assess their status but this is all set to change on 6 April 2021 when this responsibility shifts to the end user.
In XpertHR’s 60-minute webinar, payroll consultant and lecturer Kate Upcraft explains:
- What are the IR35/off-payroll reforms?
- What is changing on 6 April 2021?
- What are the consequences of IR35 and the reforms for organisations that engage individual contractors in this way?
- How can organisations prepare for the reforms?
- Is there anything that organisations can do to protect themselves from additional liabilities?
- How do you process invoices through the payroll for a contractor who is deemed to be caught by off-payroll working?
The webinar includes a Q&A session.
