Our recent policy work has been some of the most significant in IPSE’s history, with regular talks with the Chancellor and across government and national campaigns to support the self-employed through the coronavirus crisis. We're currently campaigning to review and reform the tax system and ensure the government is ready to support more of the self-employed if it comes to a second lockdown.

Financial Wellbeing Manifesto
Stop IR35

IR35 is unfair and harmful for freelancers, their clients and the economy. We're pushing against it and also for a full review to make the tax system fair for freelancers and employees alike.

Stop IR35


End late payment

Late payments are hugely damaging for freelancers at the best of times, but during the pandemic, they have been disastrous for many. We are working with the Small Business Commissioner to crack down on late and non-payment once and for all.

End late payments

When the Covid-19 pandemic struck, we campaigned for support for freelancers. We didn't get all we wanted in SEISS, but we're pushing to fill the gaps in the system.
