Controversial tax regulation IR35 is in focus at a couple of seminars set for 24 February under the guidance of the Professional Contractors Group, which has waged a multi-year protest and legal battle against the new rules.
IR35 is the regulation which enables the Inland Revenue to make tax claims against self-employed consultants, mainly working in the area of technology and computer services, where they are deemed to be similar to contracted employees for purposes of national insurance payments.
The PCG argued, and lost, in UK courts that as self-employed contractors, the individuals concerned should not be taxed.
The group is continuing its legal battle in European courts, but in the meantime is organising the seminars to outline for contractors how the recent High Court and Appeals Court rulings will affect them.
Among those giving advice will be Ben Chaplin, Qdos tax consultant and Dave Smith of Accountax
Consulting, who will explain what steps need to be taken with regard to the relevant P35 form that needs to be completed by April.
