Expectation vs Reality: The Fallout Of The IR35 Roll-Out So Far

With the deadline behind us, we’re finally starting to see the ramifications of preparing – or failing to prepare – coming to fruition for engagers and fee payers. Join Workr Compliance and STR Group at 4pm on Wednesday, 5th May for a review of the last few weeks, and key advice for maintaining BAU in the months ahead….

Hosted by Andrew Webster, Founder and Director at Workr Compliance, who will be joined by David James, Engineering Programme Director at STR Group and former IR35 Project Lead at WORLEY, this session will provide actionable insights on:

  1. Continuation of assessing PSCs
  2. Audit of the IR35 programme
  3. Upskilling of new Managers
  4. IR35 legislation updates

The prediction and warnings have transpired; we have seen both Engagers and Fee Payers ill prepared for the changes despite months of advice and guidance from all angles. Whether you’re one of them – or simply keen to maintain best practice and BAU moving forward – we have plenty of observations to share from the past few weeks.

Join us for insights on the good, the bad and the ugly, as well as advice on what Engagers and Recruitment Agencies can do pretty quickly, to attract and retain talent whilst adhering to the legislation…

Demystifying off payroll working for the entire contractual chain (whilst protecting your interests)

Workr Compliance and Markel Tax will be hosting an exclusive webinar, limited to 100 guests on Thursday 18th February from 10am to 11am.

The session will provide specialist insights on:

  • Understanding where the risk/liability lies
  • Anticipated enforcement; practical steps to remain compliant
  • What is IR35 Tax Investigation and Loss insurance and, why is it needed in the contractor recruitment supply chain?

Hosted by:

Andrew Webster, Founder & Director at Workr Compliance, will be moderating the discussion and joined by a leading IR35 and tax insurance expert:

Paul Mason, Head of Tax Partnerships at Markel Tax, will be providing a thorough overview of IR35 Tax Investigation and Loss insurance and the importance of having it in the supply chain.

The majority of Engagers are getting prepared for 6th April legislative changes and, indeed so are Fee Payers. Whilst preparations continue, a much anticipated discussion on indemnification of liability has raised its head over recent months. Workr Compliance and Markel Tax are aware that there is choice in the market for such insurance products, but why not hear first hand of ‘the whys and wherefores’ of obtaining it, in that it is not merely a tick box exercise but evidence of longer term compliance.

Lastly, there is much debate in the market as to ‘who will pay for the insurance?’ or indeed ‘is it actually needed?’ – have a platform to share your views amongst your peers on this subject matter.

Learned through experience, delivering a compliant and robust IR35 Private Sector Reform project….

Workr Compliance and STR Group will be hosting an exclusive webinar, limited to 100 guests, on Thursday 4th February, 4pm – 5pm.

The session will provide specialist insights on:

  • Preparing for 6th April 2021; at what stage of project delivery should you be at with 47 working days to legislative change
  • What are the key components of ‘best in class’ IR35 project and?
  • Identification of probable ‘bottlenecks’ to project delivery on time and, what action can be taken

Andrew Webster, Director at Workr Compliance, will be moderating the discussion and joined by leading compliance, project management, and employment status tax experts:

David James, former IR35 Project Director at WORLEY and now Engineering Programme Director at STR Group.

Sue Ollerenshaw, Director, Employment Tax Expert

The Private Sector is being told by many stakeholders to ‘prepare’, whilst it is sensible advice, it is potentially not the detailed advice from experience that is being gleaned and, that such detailed advice based on key learnings of delivery would be of greater value as we get closer each day to the 6th April!

The open discussion session will provide a platform for end client attendees to hear, first hand, the genuine challenges likely to be faced of delivering a IR35 project that meets HMRC Reasonable Care’ whilst not affecting day to day operational delivery.

We have a limited number of places available. RSVP by completing the fields to secure your place.
