IR35 is a piece of legislation that allows HMRC to collect additional payment where a contractor is an employee in all but name. Whilst historically there has been no real need for private sector employers to understand IR35, from April 2020 the rules are due to change, affecting the way private sector contractors are paid.

In times such as this, gaining objective legal advice from specialists is critical. IR35 is a complex legal issue, based on determining employment status and interpretation of tax legislation.

In this intimate speaker and networking breakfast event for 30 management-level in-house recruitment and HR professionals, we will uncover how you can best prepare your in-house recruitment team for the imminent IR35.

What will be discussed:

  • The New Rules
  • How to Make Decisions
  • Strategy and Options
  • Ramifications
  • Contract Reviews and CEST
  • Insurance and Risk
  • Scenarios
  • … and much more!
