IPSE Impact Report 2020/21

Despite the opening up of the economy, there’s no doubt it’s still a difficult time for the self-employed sector, with not only the lingering financial damage of the pandemic, but also the ill-conceived changes to IR35 and the Chancellor’s threat of tax rises on freelancers.

Read our Impact Report to find out about what we’re doing to reshape IPSE membership around you – and how we’re continuing to represent you and champion self-employment in the UK.
