Problem
How has Covid-19 impacted the proposed changes to IR35?
Resolution

Following the last-minute announcement by the Government, in-light of the recent Covid-19 outbreak, the legislation for implementation of the Off-Payroll Working (IR35) in the private sector will be delayed until April 2021.

Some of our software products will still have the functionality available however, there will not be a requirement for impacted businesses to make any changes to how they pay off-payroll workers, for now.

IR35 legislation was already in place for public sector organisations and will continue to be enforced throughout the upcoming financial tax year.

The changes to the legislation, introducing the requirement for private businesses, have come under a lot of scrutiny in the build up to the start of the financial year 2020-21. As a result, the delay was welcomed by impacted groups however, it was made clear by Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Steve Barclay that the government remains committed to introducing these measures.

During these uncertain times, IRIS will continue to monitor changes in payroll legislation, ensuring that we support customers using our software. Should any further changes be made to this, or any other legislation, we will ensure to keep everyone notified.
