Contractor Calculator Newsletter, Jul 2018: The new Off-Payroll tax – coming to the private sector and killing business

Dear Contractor

Welcome to the Jul 2018 edition of our Contractor Newsletter. This (very late, sorry) July newsletter is very much focused on IR35 and the off-payroll reforms. At ContractorCalculator we are in full-on campaign mode. We finally got HMRC to release their position on MOO - which they are entirely alone on, and we shone a light on mistruths coming from the Chancellors office on the reforms. We are making waves, and your lobbying is working. Keep at it.
