With self-employed numbers falling by 660,000 compared to the same time last year, IPSE warns of the financial damage the pandemic has done to the sector.

IPSE says the drop in self-employed numbers should be a "sharp warning" to the government ahead of the Budget.
IPSE has supported a Public Accounts Committee report and condemned the UK's outdated tax system for its 'key part' in the gaps in support.
In the November CEO update, Derek Cribb explains why the month has been one of IPSE's busiest and how we got two important wins.
