U.K. Treasury to Proceed With Off-Payroll Working Reform

The U.K. government will implement changes to the IR35 regime for services provided via personal service companies in 2020 as planned, despite concerns about the timetable and the quality of guidance provided to taxpayers.

The government on July 11 published draft finance bill legislation, explanatory notes, and tax information and impact notes. Consultation on the draft legislation, most of which deals with policy changes already announced, will close September 5. The finance bill will be presented to Parliament after the next budget, which is scheduled for the autumn.
