CIPP webcast on off-payroll working (IR35) in the private sector

29 May 2018

In the Autumn Budget 2017, the government announced it would consult on how to tackle non-compliance with the off-payroll working rules in the private sector and that consultation has now been published.

HMRC estimates that currently only around 10% of people who should comply with the off-payroll working rules do so.  The cost of non-compliance in the private sector is growing and is estimated that it will reach £1.2 billion a year by 2022/23.

The consultation provides an early evaluation of the public sector reform which external research on initial implementation shows that the reform has had relatively little impact on projects or vacancy filling in the public sector. Within the consultation, it provides options for changes to the off-payroll working rules for engagements in the private sector.

Listen to our short webcast to find out what the consultation is all about. The Policy team will also be publishing a survey in due course to gather your views and experience to help inform our response.
