Change to the off-payroll working rules

As part of a review into changes to the operation of the off-payroll working rules (IR35), HMRC has announced that the changes will only apply to payments made for services provided on or after 6 April 2020. Previously, the rules would have applied to any payments made on or after 6 April 2020, regardless of when the services were carried out. It means businesses will only need to determine whether the rules apply for contracts they plan to continue beyond 6 April 2020, giving businesses more time to prepare. The latest position is now set out in the updated guidance in the Employment Status Manual.

The formal publication of a review into the implementation of changes to the off-payroll working rules is due to conclude later in February 2020.
