The IR35 tax rules in the private sector have changed
These IR35 changes were a disaster in the public sector and they are already proving to be just as devasting in the private sector. They affect the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of contractors. IPSE continues to campaign against IR35, pushing the government to address the underlying problems in the tax system so we can do away with IR35 once and for all.
We are also raising awareness about what the changes might mean to the self-employed, how they can prepare, and how IPSE can help protect them.
Join our #stopIR35 campaign and find everything you need to know about how the IR35 changes could affect you.
IPSE is the leading organisation representing the self-employed on IR35
Our expert policy team represent IPSE members at all levels of government
We are experts in defending and protecting against IR35
We have supported contractors in more than 2000 IR35 investigations
Our campaigning took HMRC all the way to the House of Lords – and won – ensuring S660 or the "family business tax" is dead in the water
We have taken HMRC to Employment Tribunal on behalf of our members and won an out-of-court settlement - this is a new weapon in our armoury since the IR35 changes in the public sector in 2017 and will be increasingly important in the private from April 2021
We work with others, such as banks and other large end-users, agencies and the CBI to help them and their members deal with IR35
As a not-for-profit, every penny we receive goes back into helping our members and the wider cause of freelancers. This means providing the latest information on IR35 changes to our community, and continuing to campaign on their behalf.
