IR35 Postponed Until April 2021
It was announced late last night that the Off-Payroll Rules (IR35) changes to the private sector which were due to come into effect from 6 April 2020 have been postponed until 6 April 2021. The 12 month postponement was announced by Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Steve Barclay, during the Commons Budget debate as part of the ongoing support for individuals and businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Partner and Head of Employer Solutions, Ross Oliphant, commented,
“Although we have been actively preparing our clients for the introduction of these changes, I’m glad to see the Government doing the responsible thing and hope that the delay will help reduce the strain for businesses during this time.”
