HMRC makes last-minute change to IR35 rule

HM Revenue & Customs have announced changes to the operation of off-payroll working rules, meaning they will now only apply to payments made for services provided on or after 6 April 2020.

The announcement was made this morning (Friday 07 February) ahead of the publication of the government’s review into implementation of the new rules, in response to a common issue raised over the course of the review, which is businesses’ concerns over what payments the rules apply to – and from when.

The government says the decision was taken to give businesses certainty and more time to prepare to ensure the smooth and successful implementation of the reforms that come into force from 6 April.
