We advise large and medium-sized businesses on the April 2020 IR35 changes (now postponed to April 2021), which should not be ignored. HMRC changes mean that ultimate PAYE liability is passed along the contractor-chain to the client unless a proper status determination is made. We are advising a number of national recruiters, logistics companies and construction companies on the proposed IR 35 changes, in particular. As ever, we adopt a “solutions-focused” approach.”
