The government has delayed changes to IR35 until 2021.

Further to our blog last month regarding IR35 tax rules that were due to come into force on 6th April this year, the government has today announced that the extension of IR35 to medium and large companies in the private sector is being postponed by a year, to 6th April 2021.

This is undoubtedly a sensible move and means that businesses can focus on matters more currently pressing.
