Stop The Off-Payroll Tax: MP lobby day at Westminster on Tuesday 9th July – see details below
We will be there – We hope you will join us – Together we can make a difference
The Stop the Off-Payroll Tax is taking it’s message to Westminster on Tuesday 9th July and is calling on contractors and campaign supporters to join them at the event.
It is calling on workers within the sector to meet them at Westminster at 2.15pm and is asking them to contact their MP and inviting them to attend.
If you don’t know who your MP is or need their email, you can locate your MP here.
The leaders of the campaign are also calling on contractors to ask for meetings with their MPs as well as asking them to meet you in Westminster.
If you can’t join us or meet with your MP, the campaign is also looking for people to write to their MPs and put pressure on them to take action. To help you, you can find an email template here.
We want to see more MPs understanding this issue and showing their support, so if you haven’t already done so, please ask your MP to sign Early Day Motion 2379 opposing the Off-Payroll Tax. The EDM is here so please lobby your MP.
The campaign is hoping to collect a dossier of responses from MPs and has asked that those taking to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Industry members, including our team at Cogent, have made representations to HMRC via the campaign, which aims to prevent the new rules for the private sector going ahead next year.
It is asking for a review of the current legislation, in order to work out how to recognise contracting fairly within the tax system.
A summary of all the responses to the HMRC’s consultation ‘Off-Payroll working rules from April 2020’, which are very critical of the ill-considered plans, can be found here.
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.
