Coronavirus – IR35 – Private Sector reform delayed (18/03/2020)

The UK Goverment has announced that the IR35 reforms to the private sector due to come into force on 6th April 2020 have been delayed by 12 months until 6th April 2021.

The reforms have come in for considerable criticism from contractors, client businesses as well as the House of Lords, and while the delay was announced as being linked to the Coronavirus economic support package, some will hope that the additional time before implementation will result in further changes to the proposed rules.
