Anderselite Host Fully Booked IR35 Event with Morson and The Bridge IT to Support Private Sector Clients

We were thrilled with the turnout at our first IR35 Forum in Leeds this week. The fully booked event demonstrated how end clients can compliantly support their contractor workforce through the changes to IR35.  Featuring insightful presentations from our specialist partners Weightmans LLP and Champion Contractors the seminar covered:

• How to avoid costly legal challenges
• Ensuring your contracts are compliant
• Reducing the numbers of contractors that leave your organisation
• Liaising with your contractor population to provide a consistent message.
• Getting equipped with the right tools and partners to compliantly support your organisation and contractor workforce
John Hobbs, Director (Construction) at Anderselite explains how important these events are for our clients; ‘It was clear, from the excellent turnout, how keen the industry is for information regarding the legislative changes. Our IR35 forums form an essential part of our ongoing commitment to supporting our client community and we we’re delighted with the feedback from attendee’s. Our specialist partners Weightmans LLP and Champion Contractors were able to impart expert knowledge and provide practical advice to our clients, who came away more informed and prepared for April 2020.’
IR35 is the latest piece of legislation that will affect the contractor landscape. The rules for the taxation of those individuals providing their services through a personal service company introduced under IR35 will be changing from April 2020.  Changes to how IR35 is applied in respect to the provision of off-payroll working in the Public Sector were made in 2017. The intention is to make ‘similar’ changes for the Private Sector. One of the key changes which will directly affect our clients is that the responsibility of defining the IR35 status will switch from the individual to the end client.


Given the dependence of many large companies on short-term contractors, we strongly recommend that companies who engage contractors start making arrangements right away – to ensure you are ready to take on the new responsibilities in April 2020. Our specialist partners Weightmans LLP and Champion Contractors can help you undertake a full review of your contractual workforce, to ensure your business is prepared well in advance of the changes. In addition, we have created a downloadable guide to help you navigate the changes that may impact your business. Recordings and commentary from our latest IR35 forum give insight and practical advice on the steps your business needs to take to prepare. The e-book concludes with questions put to the panel by end clients who operate in the private sector. Their questions, and the answers provided, give real insight into the queries and concerns of business professionals who will be directly affected by IR35.

This experience was called upon to support public sector organisations through the off-payroll changes implemented in April 2017.
