A lot of documentation has been published by HMRC over the last year containing a number of interesting statistics around IR35 enquiries. Recent amendments involving the IR35 legislation, including changes to IR35 responsibilities in the public sector, and restrictions on travel and subsistence expenses, show that the government is keen to tighten the rules on its flexible workforce.
Leading IR35 advisers, Qdos Contractor, have pulled together the key statistics surrounding IR35 enquiries. Seb Maley, CEO of Qdos Contractor, says “the IR35 legislation is complex, however, we recommend that all contractors have a basic understanding of the rules as this can help you protect your business and your income.” Qdos have created an ‘How to Survive an IR35 Enquiry’ guide to help contractors understand how an IR35 enquiry works, what to do, and what not to do.
