Contractor Calculator Newsletter, Oct 2018: Leaked HMRC webinar suggests taxman has misled the NHS on IR35

Dear Contractor

Welcome to the Oct 2018 edition of our Contractor Newsletter. A webinar by HMRC, leaked to ContractorCalculator by IHPA, raises questions over the accuracy of guidance given to the NHS. A contractor obtains a payout after being pushed inside IR35. We publish a summary of responses to the private sector IR35 consultation after trade bodies and groups share their response with us. Contractors request rights if caught inside IR35.
