There's still time to get IR35 ready

​The changes to IR35 legislation come into effect in just a number of weeks now. Do you feel like you’re not yet prepared? Don’t worry – there’s still time to get ready. And even better, we’re here to help!

You’ll know by now that the responsibility for deciding whether contractors you use sit inside or outside of IR35 will now fall to you (the end hirer). That means that by April you’ll need to have carried out a full audit of your current workers, reviewed and revised contracts and made tweaks, where necessary, to the way you differentiate between your contractors and PAYE employees. You’ll then need to advise them, and other parties that may be affected, of your decision. 

Failure to comply with the new legislation can have legal implications and carry hefty fines.
