IR35 Seminar: A closer look at the new off-payroll working rules | Wednesday 11 March 2020

Posted: February 10, 2020

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE IMPLICATIONS FOR YOUR BUSINESS OF THE NEW OFF-PAYROLL RULES?

Changes to the off-payroll working rules are due to come into force from 6 April 2020.  Under the new rules, medium and large-sized private sector companies who hire workers through intermediaries, e.g.  the worker’s own personal services (or “loan-out”) company (PSC), will potentially take on the responsibility for paying tax and National Insurance contributions to HMRC as if they were employees.

This free seminar will look at the new rules and when they apply.  We will discuss the factors to determine  employment status and consider what responsibilities clients, agents, intermediaries and workers have under the rules.  We will also look at the key legal issues and practical implications for the media and entertainment industry.

The seminar is aimed at all those who use workers via PSCs, be it inhouse legal teams, HR professionals and business managers. 

This seminar will be given by members of both our media and employment team.  We will also be joined by Dave Morrison of Nyman Libson Paul to discuss the new rules from a tax perspective.
