Contractor Calculator Newsletter, Feb 2018: Private sector IR35 reforms set for April 2019, infers HMRC Forum minutes

Dear Contractor

Welcome to the Feb 2018 edition of our Contractor Newsletter. All signs point to a roll out of the IR35 reforms into private sector from 6th April 2019. Any contract signed that overlaps that period needs to be water tight from day 1 to avoid a potential mess leading up to the date. Due to the IR35 reforms voluntary tax compliance has suffered a massive hit, and dodgy loan schemes are rife. Our IR35 campaigning is progressing, and we are getting the messages to MPs. Please write to your MP.
