Have you been working in the public sector and been impacted by the off-payroll working rules. This survey will help IPSE to measure the effects of the legislation and to develop future policy work in this area.
What is the current situation?
On 6 April 2017, the Government introduced changes to the way IR35 works in the public sector. Under the new arrangements, public sector organisations are responsible for determining IR35 status, not individual contractors, as had previously been the case. If the client determines that the off-payroll rules apply, the engagement would be taxed as if it was one of employment. We’ve heard that the impact of the policy has been damaging, both to contractors and to the public sector itself. Now we need to gather the evidence.
The Government is considering extending the rules to the private sector, which is why it is crucially important to fully understand how businesses and public sector organisations have responded to the changes.
You must have worked on a public sector contract in the last two years and operate via a limited company or limited liability partnership to qualify for this survey. It should take no longer than ten minutes to complete.
