FCSA submits response to HMRC’s off-payroll IR35 consultation

FCSA submitted our joint response to the HMRC off-payroll/IR35 public sector consultation one week ahead of deadline. The full response can be found in the link below.

We believe that any reform to IR35 should encourage tax compliance, whilst also preserving entrepreneurship and workforce flexibility.

We believe the proposals fall short of this aim. Instead they impose liability on a party who has very little information in order to complete an assessment of IR35 and unintended consequences include deemed employment, incorrect calculation of tax liabilities and difficulties in PSCs recovering overpaid tax.
