On 6 April 2021, new rules (IR35) come into force aiming to prevent tax avoidance by off-payroll workers claiming to be self-employed when they are better classed as “employed” and clamping down on companies who avoid employment legislation by hiring such workers. Here Richard Smith discusses the implications of these new rules for companies using self-employed or agency staff in the transport industry.
As IR35 extends to the private sector, we look at what this means for businesses that will be recruiting (including those from outside the UK), and how they need to set-up their systems to manage anyone inside or outside of IR35.
In this article, Stuart Chamberlain, Croner-i author and employment law consultant, outlines alternatives to redundancy for employers such as the Government's Job Retention Scheme (“Furlough”), while managing a pandemic such as the coronavirus (Covid-19).
