Course overview

From April 2020, the government will require medium and large businesses in the private sector to implement the off-payroll rules that have previously been in force in the public sector. This is arguably the biggest change in employment status for employers and agents for many years. The new rules will make businesses liable for determining the tax status of contractors using Personal Service Companies (PSCs). The changes will have a huge impact on finance, HR and payroll teams - who will be faced with potentially significant costs and compliance challenges. 

This half-day course is essential for any organisation that engages with freelancers and contractors operating through a Personal Service Company (PSC). It will give you a complete understanding of the new IR35 rules and how they will affect your organisation. This understanding will be crucial in enabling you to fully prepare for the inevitable challenges that will arise. Non-compliance can result in unwanted company fines, so appropriate preparation and implementation of the rules is even more critical. 

The course is delivered by our renowned payroll expert, Kate Upcraft and there will be the opportunity for interactive discussions during the course.
