It may be confusing as to who is responsible when it comes to IR35 changes, but it isn’t just how IR35 affects contractors, the legislation will be enforced with organisations too. Most medium to large companies will be liable, along with recruitment agencies.
As a specialist telecom & technology recruitment agency, we have a duty of care to help our clients implement the IR35 rules to ensure our clients follow the law and that our contractors pay the correct tax.
The law had already come into effect for the public sector back in 2017, so as of April 2020, non-negotiable tax and National insurance payments will be unavoidable for workers in the private sector too.
We have put together a simple guide for companies to start planning for compliance in the contractor-heavy telecoms sector. The information provided should be enough to point you in the right direction and prepare your business for IR35 without delay.
