Please note that as a result of COVID-19, the government has announced that the IR35 rule changes in April 2020 have been postponed. Our pages are being updated to reflect this and in the meantime you can find more IR35 information in our FAQs:
The government is changing how IR35 tax rules work in the private sector
IPSE is the leading organisation supporting the self-employed and fighting IR35
Our expert policy team fight for IPSE members at all levels of government
We are the real experts in defending and protecting against IR35
We have won more than 2000 IR35 investigations (HMRC have won fewer than 20)
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.
