UK government launches off-payroll working review

Last week, the government announced it was launching a review of changes to off-payroll working rules to ensure the smooth implementation of the reforms, which are set to come into force in April 2020.

Off-payroll working rules, known as IR35, were introduced in 2000 to ensure that workers employed through their own company, pay similar taxes to other employees.

The reforms are designed to tackle non-compliance with off-payroll working rules by making medium and large organisations in the private and third sectors responsible for determining the tax status of contractors, rather than the contractors themselves.

The review, which will conclude by mid-February, will engage with affected individuals and businesses on their experiences of the implementation of these reforms.
