Prepare for IR35 changes

IR35 is coming - here's how to prepare your business for the changes.

The amendments to the IR35 legislation are due to come into effect on 6th April 2021 and represent perhaps the biggest change in taxation for limited company contractors in the last 20 years.

From 6th April 2021, the responsibility for determining whether a limited company contractor falls inside of the IR35 legislation (and therefore should be treated as an employee for tax purposes) shall move to the client. Whether you're an employer preparing for the changes, or a contractor looking to plan your next steps, explore our IR35 hub to find out more about Robert Walters' approach to IR35, what to expect in April and the options available to you.
