The Government is currently calling for evidence on a proposal to make the payment of Income Tax Self-Assessment (ITSA) and Corporation Tax more frequent – potentially quarterly compared to the current yearly contributions. IPSE have met with HMRC officials and plan to respond to the call of evidence. Therefore, we are looking to gauge the thoughts and identify areas of concern amongst the membership in order to shape our response.
IPSE regularly runs surveys to track trends in freelancing and inform policy. The data obtained from these surveys supports our work with government and industry.
It’s more important than ever that the vital contribution you make as a freelancer is recognised. By taking part in IPSE's survey you will be providing important insight to ensure that you are accurately represented, helping us to continue to champion improvements to the self-employment landscape. Any surveys that are currently in progress will be shown below.
