Important changes are due to take effect in April 2021 in respect of the off-payroll working rules (often referred to as ‘IR35’). Whilst many of the headlines have been concerned with the extension of the rules to large and medium sized businesses, there are key changes set to take place which also affect public sector bodies concerning the relevant processes to follow, eg the introduction of a Status Determination Statement (SDS) and the requirement for a disputes procedure.  It is important that public bodies start preparing for these changes now.

Since April 2017, when the main changes for public bodies rules regarding off-payroll working were introduced, we have been continued to receive a large number of questions regarding the issues faced in determining when and how the rules should be applied by public bodies. Therefore, this course aims to provide clarity on a number of key issues including:

  • Why were the IR35 rules changed and what is their purpose?
  • What is an intermediary body for the purposes of the legislation?
  • When does IR35 need to be considered?
  • How should the questions asked in the HMRC online tool ‘Check Employment Status for Tax’ (CEST) be interpreted?
  • What are the rules regarding the use of agencies?
  • What are the commercial considerations to consider in applying the IR35 rules?

We will use a number of case studies based on actual situations we have encountered to inform a better understanding. We recommend this training course to all PSTAX clients and contacts and particularly for staff in Finance, HR, Payroll, Procurement and Tax.

The training sessions will start at 10.00 , finishing no later than 1.00pm

The cost of each half day course is £155 plus VAT per delegate. PLEASE NOTE this is reduced to £135 plus VAT per delegate for PSTAX Club members. Organisations booking three or more places will receive a 10% discount.
