Following HMRC’s IR35 update made on 8th February 2020, it has been confirmed that the changes will only apply to payments made for services provided on or after 6th April 2020. As a result of this, businesses will be able to continue to pay contractors that are affected by the new rules for any work carried out prior to 6th April 2020 without PAYE deductions.
Originally, HMRC stated that PAYE may have to apply for all payments made on or after 6th April 2020, regardless of when the work was done. This means organisations will only need to determine whether the rules apply for contracts they plan to continue beyond 6 April 2020, supporting businesses as they prepare.
HMRC has committed to offer support and guidance to those who are impacted by the changes. They have put together a detailed guide to help workers and companies through the process.
