New Quick Poll: Readiness for off-payroll working reforms
17 July 2020
It has been impossible to discuss most things over the course of the past few weeks and months without reference to the words pandemic, coronavirus or COVID-19. Although Rishi Sunak confirmed at Budget 2020 that the off-payroll working reforms would go ahead from 6 April 2020, the outbreak of coronavirus changed all of this and, on 18 March 2020, the government confirmed that the reforms would be delayed until 6 April 2021.
This may seem to be quite far away in the distant future, but the time will rapidly come around, and businesses need to ensure that they are ready for the changes to the off-payroll working rules in order to ensure that they are compliant with them. There are many individuals still lobbying for the reforms to be delayed further, and there are also those that are calling for them to be abolished in their entirety.
To establish how prepared payroll professionals are for the imminent off-payroll working reforms, the CIPP’s Policy and Research team has included a new Quick Poll on the News Online page.
We recognise that, now more than ever, payroll departments are extremely busy but the Quick Poll will take less than a minute to respond to, and will help to determine how prepared businesses within the UK are, on a whole, for the upcoming changes to the rules.
Thank you in advance for the time taken to respond to the Quick Poll, and to feed into research on the preparedness for the reforms to off-payroll working rules from 6 April 2021.
