IR35 in the private sector
05 November 2019
After much speculation about the implementation date, the Chancellor announced in the Budget that he would extend the IR35 reforms to the private sector from 6 April 2020.
Some organisations may breathe a sigh of relief that the reforms will not take effect until next year, particularly with Brexit looming, and take comfort from the extra time to prepare for this significant change. However, in reality there is still only a short period to understand the potential impact, identify any areas of potential risk and implement necessary changes to be ready for April 2020.
