The government announced on 17 March 2020 that the implementation date for the legislation for Off Payroll Workers (OPW) or contractors, commonly known as IR35, will be deferred until 6 April 2021.

In response to this, we are currently assessing the impact of this on our business as well as the contractors we work with.

If you are a contractor engaged with the firm, prior to 6 April 2020 we may have already been in touch with you to discuss the impact of IR35 and the way we need to engage with you going forward. As the implementation date for the legislation has now moved and could impact previously agreed plans, we will be in contact in due course to advise on any required changes or to discuss proposed next steps.

If you have any further questions in the meantime, please get in touch with your firm contact.
