Off-payroll working (IR35)
The rules for off-payroll working (often called ‘IR35’) were reformed in 2017, following a series of disputes over whether workers were really self-employed or were taking advantage of a tax benefit. Initially rolled out in the public sector, the reforms are now being extended to the private sector.
The hiring company (or End User) is now responsible for determining the employment status of anyone working for your business. Are they “inside” IR35 (effectively an employee) or “outside” (acting as a genuine contractor)?
Get this wrong and you could face new tax liabilities, a risk to your O-Licence and possible recruitment challenges. Our white paper explains how to prepare for the change, and offers information on the key tests you need to understand.

Surveys were sent to drivers and employers, which highlight the current salaries offered between sectors, and the motivations that both attract and retain an engaged workforce.
