Breaking News – Off-payroll reforms in private sector deferred

It was announced last night in the house of commons that the new rules for off-payroll working in the private sector will be deferred for a year – now being introduced from 6th April 2021 instead of 6th April 2020.

This will be welcome news for some, especially those contractors who still have an active engagement through their limited company.  It remains to be seen how those end clients who have already moved all of their contractors to umbrella company models will react.
