A new campaign has been launched to permanently scrap the plans for the new off-payroll tax rules and to launch a review of the IR35 legislation.
Industry members have launched the Stop The Off-Payroll Tax campaign that will aim to prevent the new rules for the private sector going ahead next year.
Instead, it will ask for a review of the current legislation, in order to work out how to recognise contracting fairly within the tax system.
The Government intends to include the new IR35 legislation in this year’s Finance Bill, which will be brought before Parliament in November.
With some support already from MPs, including Ged Killen MP, who held a debate on this issue a few weeks ago, has now tabled an Early Day Motion (EDM 2379), the campaign leaders are calling on contractors to canvass their local MP to see if they can help.
The best way of getting the message across to your MP is to go and see them in person, so if you write first about the damage The Off-Payroll Tax will do, and ask them to sign EDM #2379, and include that you would like a meeting with them in person.
As an industry likely to be severely impacted by these changes, now is the last time to have your say, so why not take part in this campaign to apply pressure on the Government: https://www.contractorcalculator.co.uk/stoptheoffpayrolltax
