IPSE has warned of the risk of the workforce becoming rigid after a "disproportionate and disturbing" slump in the number of self-employed in the UK.
IPSE's latest Confidence Index shows a steep drop in freelancers' average incomes and continuing low confidence.
This week, IPSE's Andy Chamberlain gave evidence to the London Assembly on the impact of coronavirus on freelancers and the other challenges facing them - particularly IR35.
In his update for July, IPSE CEO Derek Cribb discusses IR35 in the Finance Bill, membership improvements and new campaigns on the horizon.
IPSE has said the government has not done enough in response to the Treasury Select Committee report on gaps in coronavirus support.

IPSE is urging self-employed individuals who may be eligible for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) to ensure they have applied before the first deadline on 13 July in order to make sure they receive the grant.
IPSE responds to the Chancellor's mini statement, warning the self-employed face a "cliff-edge" without a tapered end to SEISS.
