IR35 – post 6th April 2020, contractor or agency worker?  

This practical, hands on seminar is designed to help delegates understand the regulatory and contractual impact of the changes to the IR35 rules which are now set to apply from 6th April.

As some hirers are rejecting the continued use of company contractors, and others still hope to use them, contracts and processes will need to change and different regulations could apply. At the same time, new Conduct Regulations require key information to be provided. What are the options, how should you deal with them, what risks attach to each?

With presentations from both Lawspeed and HMRC the seminar will cover the impact of:

  • The IR35 off payroll rules applicable from 6th April 2020
  • Conduct Regulations requirements and limited company opting out
  • Agency Worker Regulations
  • Changing client requirements

Whilst Lawspeed will be focussing on the rules and practical implications for contractor supply, HMRC will discuss the rationale for change, the Government’s recent review of implementation of the reform, and the education and support that HMRC are providing to customers to support implementation. Different types of engagement will be considered including the pros and cons of different contract models (PAYE, umbrella, consultancy, personal service company). Attendees will as a result gain a rounded understanding of both policy and practical implementation.
