IR35 – Important off-payroll working rule changes that will significantly impact the sector, especially recruitment 

Any medium or large private company that uses the services of an intermediary to provide their business with contractors or freelancers will become liable to asses and potentially pay their tax and National Insurance from April 2020. 

Whilst this will affect all sectors, it particularly affects the recruitment sector. You can find out more about this here or alternatively contact us directly, for information on how this will impact your business and how we can assist and ensure you are prepared for this.
