IR35 and engaging contractors: prepare for change in 2021

The IR35 tax rules are changing in April 2021 and you need to be ready. If you use contractors, you will become responsible for assessing their tax status and may need to start deducting tax and national insurance contributions via PAYE. 

Join our workshop to find out what compliance will mean for your business, get the tools to assess your risk and put in place a plan of action to manage your contractor relationships.

  • About event
  • This workshop will explain the April 2021 changes to the IR35 rules. 

    We will look in detail at the employee status tests so you can determine whether individual contractor relationships fall inside or outside IR35. 

    Using worked examples, we will illustrate the potential financial impact on you, the end user, where PAYE deductions are required.

    We will unpick the technical terms so you know how to complete a ‘status determination statement’, what ‘reasonable care’ means when making the determination and the risks and potential liabilities if you get it wrong.

    We will explore options for next steps based on the possible outcomes of status determination assessments, so that you will be able to make strategic decisions, such as:
    • Whether to employ some contractors directly and the cost/benefit of doing so
    • How to respond to contractors who demand higher pay to set off any reduction in take-home pay
    • What to do if a contractor insists that their status should not change  

    There will also be plenty of opportunity to share experiences and intelligence with other delegates about how they and their contractors are responding to the upcoming changes.

  • Who Should Attend?
  • This workshop is suitable for HR professionals, senior managers and payroll managers.
