Employment status and off-payroll working (IR35) remain a challenging area of compliance for public bodies and present a material risk where reasonable care is not taken. It is a subject that continues to evolve with interesting legal cases making news headlines, HMRC initiatives to help promote compliance and a new consultation on how offsets may be applied in the future involving IR35 cases. Therefore, as ever, it is important to keep up with all the latest developments.

What’s covered?

To help public bodies ensure that they are fully aware of the requirements in this area, we are pleased to offer a seminar, via Microsoft Teams, on all the latest developments and the impact they are likely to have on public bodies.
We will be giving our reflections on the HMRC LAUPSTREAM1 campaign for local authorities; the latest case law developments involving media presenters and how the key tests of status have been interpreted by the Tribunals/Courts; and the recently announced consultation by HMRC regarding how settlements involving off-payroll working (IR35) cases will be handled taking into account tax that has already been paid by the intermediary company (currently, no offset is allowed when it comes to settling with the deemed employer).

Guest Speaker

We are also delighted to announce that we will be joined by a guest speaker from HMRC Policy/Compliance who will be able to provide valuable updates on the above issues and HMRC’s approach to compliance with IR35 and employment status generally.
This is a rare opportunity to learn directly from HMRC regarding this crucial compliance issue, which can help inform the policies and procedures within your organisations to help reduce your risks.

The seminar will be invaluable to anyone with involvement with IR35 and status issues, eg HR, payroll, finance and procurement staff, as well as senior management within your organisation who would benefit from a clearer understanding of the risks involved and what can be done to reduce them.
