IR35 Rules & the Public Sector
IR35 and the Public Sector – a united call for change
Commenced December 2016 – active
The new IR35 public sector rules are set to apply from 6 April 2017. ARC believes that the government’s approach is overly complex, unduly onerous on agencies, unworkable in practice and potentially unlawful. It is ARC’s intention to gather support across the recruitment sector and hold government accountable for the negative impact this legislation could have on the industry.
If you service the public sector with limited company contractors, you should already be aware of the new IR35 rules. There is a risk that if successful those rules could easily be rolled out to the private sector, so affecting all contractor supply. That is unless we can do something to stop them.
