IR35: if it walks like a duck...

20 November 2019

In the UK, a great number of organisations engage self-employed IR35 contractors to complete work on their behalf. This gives more freedom to both parties and, typically, lower taxes. At present, much of the risk to this structure sits with the individual contractor. From April 2020, the risk shifts – often to the end user or client. In this webinar Ian Deakin discusses what IR35 is, what is changing, and what steps you need to take.
