With IR35 reforms just around the corner (coming into effect 6 April 2020), companies across the private sector are reviewing how they engage and work with contractors.
Of course, the first step in preparing for the reforms is making your determinations- i.e. assessing whether a particular contract assignment falls inside or outside of the off-payroll worker rules. As you may well have experienced already, assessing IR35 status isn’t always easy as there are a number of influencing factors.
With the time pressure mounting, many businesses are, understandably, focusing on the act of undertaking their assessments and ensuring a compliant approach is in place for assignments deemed as ‘inside’. But something else which requires some thought is the genuine ‘outside’ assignments and the working practices which go alongside them.
