What are IR35 legislative changes happening in April 2020?

New off-payroll working rules were introduced in the public sector which transferred the responsibility to account for PAYE/NIC from the individual to the engager (or fee payer if someone else paid the contractor). The public sector rules will be extended to large and medium sized businesses in the private sector from April 2020.

IR35 in simple terms means that if a worker is a disguised employee he/she should be subjected to the same tax and national insurance deductions as other regular employees. IR35 does not therefore affect those paying employed levels of tax (for example, umbrella employees) but does affect those running their own personal service companies (PSCs) and declaring dividends from company profit.
