The Government has launched a review of the IR35 legislation

The Government announced on 8 January 2020 a review into the implementation of the IR35 legislation which is due to come into effect from 6 April 2020 for medium and large businesses.

The review will not delay the introduction of the legislation and the Government has stated that it (the review) will determine if any further steps can be taken to ensure the smooth and successful implementation of the reforms.

There are a number points which still need to be commented upon by the Government concerning how engagers should deal with any status disputes and how grant income, including voluntary donations will be excluded from the turnover test.

For more information please contact Nick Bustin or your usual haysmacintyre contact.
