IR35 and HMRC - off-payroll working


Who should attend

HR, payroll and recruitment specialists who work with contingent labour.


These briefings cover the new IR35 rules (from April 2020) and when, and to whom, they apply. These rules make clients liable for determining the tax status of their contractors and the aim is to discourage ‘disguised employment’. We also cover your use of agencies and contractors in your supply chain.
