About IR35

The new IR35 regulations mean that from 6 April 2021, in principle, it will be your business’ responsibility to determine the work and tax status of your contractors. However, many senior leaders are unsure whether the new laws will impact them, what the changes mean to their operations and how they should prepare.

Understand how changes may impact your business with Salt’s IR35 business solutions. Download the brochure for more information here.

How will IR35 affect my business?

IR35 (off-payroll working rules) is a tax legislation which was formally introduced by the UK Government in April 2000 to deal with tax avoidance from contractors who HMRC believe to be full-time employees. Broadly, IR35 law states that if a contractor does the same type of work as a full-time employee, then they should also be taxed as employees.

The responsibility for the IR35 assessment currently sits with the contractor themselves, however, from 6 April 2021, this responsibility will move from the contractor to the end-user (or the business that directly engages with the contractor).
