IR35 is now a reality and should be integrated into the day to day practices of any organisation. Amended in April 2021, it completely changed the way in which businesses utilise contractors.
As a result of the changes, the responsibility for identifying the employment status of an individual has transferred to the end user employing them. Failure to correctly identify a worker against the IR35 criteria could lead to difficulties with HMRC, including heavy financial levies which are likely to increase as the implementation of IR35 becomes more commonplace.
