IR 35 Changes Delayed Until 2021
On 17th March 2020 the Chief Secretary, Steve Barclay, announced that the IR35 tax reforms would be pushed back by one year, less than a week after the controversial measures were confirmed in the Budget.
Instead, the measures will come into effect on 6 April next year.
Barclay said that move is part of a broad package of measures the Treasury has announced to protect the economy from the coronavirus outbreak.
He confirmed that the decisions was “a deferral, not a cancellation, and the government remains committed to reintroducing this policy”.
