IR35 and T&S: Proposed changes and the impact for contractors and freelancers

The proposed changes

Earlier this week saw the closing date for responses to HMRC’s Intermediaries Legislation (IR35) discussion document and the Employment Intermediaries and Tax Relief for Travel and Subsistence consultation document. Intouch Accounting have formally submitted responses to both, championing  the voice of contractors. While we fully support fairness and the need to level the playing field, we share concerns of many in the industry that HMRC’s plans are piecemeal and severally flawed. We have put forward our suggestions of what we believe would be better solutions, based on our extensive experience working with contractors. We have also contributed to FCSA’s response. We now await the outcome and expect to hear more in November’s Autumn Statement. We’ll keep you posted as events unfold.


In the meantime download our new ebrief to help you make sense of the proposals and our suggestions.


Don’t face HMRC’s changes alone. At Intouch Accounting we work with Limited Company contractors every day so if you’re thinking of starting contracting or want more from your contractor accountant, contact us today.
