  • Thank you, Jake, You're good afternoon.

  • Everyone on.

  • Welcome to today's webinar.

  • The purpose off the Webinar today is to highlight the changes to I R 35 legislation, which are due to be implemented in April 2020.

  • So not fire away on.

  • We'll also touch throughout the webinar on what you need to do to prepare so some practical suggestions to help you.

  • I'll also pervade some context to these changes and avenge you about the overall purpose off the eye off of the five legislation which hasn't fight being alone for something like 20 years.

  • So this is not new legislation.

  • It's just being updated based on some at least recent proclamations from HMRC.

  • We've had a lot of questions about I'll certify already, eh?

  • So what I'll try to do throughout the webinar on the end of the day, you slay to seek to answer some of the questions that already landed S O.

  • We will make sure that I highlight a zoo go along, but please, as Jake said, submit questions through the webinar on.

  • We'll do our best to respond.

  • So here's the agenda for the next 20 minutes or so, have around 19 or 20 slides so lot to get through, I'll give you some general context.

  • As I said to I 35 I'll cover the new rules and a little bit about another two bit of detail on what you need to do with your existing private sector assignments.

  • I think it's important that highlight the available tools to you from HMRC on Lane, which is known as the check of employment status, too.

  • I'll talk a little bit about what the future holds for the assignment you're walking on.

  • At the moment, we've had some specific questions about overseas clients on how you should deal with those.

  • This is a complex Syria, but we'll do our best to give you a crunch interpretation.

  • They don't take you through some of the 35 tests that hmrc looks to the Carioca, whether it carries on an investigation into individual personal service companies and they look for ways with some breaking news on some remarks about her crunch can help you and your personal service company so quick.

  • Recap on i R.

  • 35.

  • The legislation was in introduced into thousands.

  • What the legislation is designed to do is to make sure that workers on employers p that I am out of employment taxis, and that's aimed to remove any differences between employed workers on the self employed who are in the face of it.

  • Undertaking similar work especially affects contractors or workers pervading service.

  • He soon intermediary I'm not usually a personal service company, which is, in fact a limited company you also hear Tell him such as this guy's employment or off people working rules.

  • These air all substitutes for I 35 so you'll hear that from time to time.

  • Importantly, the rules and who decides the IA 35 status, often a Saimon, which would introduce for the public sector and April 2017 r no being implemented in the private sector from the sixth of equal 2020 on imported beat that you need to be a weed off.

  • I must see from the oats.

  • It's a complex area on key.

  • Slower is still emerging on.

  • You see the outcome of tribunal rules with different outcomes in the breasts of a woman.

  • If it was a foothold on a diagram, I would do it this week.

  • If you start on the left hand side, you look at the owner of a limited company or the worker whose elevating service is through a personal service is company.

  • There will be a contract between the PSC on the end user of the client.

  • The engaging on that could be an agency who sits between the incline under personal service company so there will be a contract for service is between the PSC on the end client now.

  • Importantly, what HMRC will work for is the curve the lane there between the owner worker on the end client.

  • They will take the personal service company out of the equation on Look at what they call the hypothetical contract.

  • So how would that Walker be assessed if the personal service company wasn't there?

  • Are other carrying out the same duties as an employee would?

  • Or are they?

  • In fact, you know, an independent contractor pervading service is to the incline so that that's in the diagram.

  • What HMRC seeks to do when our cities any I r 35 contracts or working assignment.

  • So why is I have 35 important on simple terms and employed worker under appeal hearing you will pay more than income tax and national insurance than a self employed contractor working through an intermediary.

  • That's a very broad statement, but in simple terms.

  • That's the situation we find ourselves in to the the incline pays employers national insurance for every employee at 13.8%.

  • It doesn't pay any national insurance at an employer for the worker who are self employed thinking about from the contractors perspective.

  • They could extract the profit from the limited company using any tax efficient combination off Saudi and evidence the lake.

  • And they can also build up significant between profit in the limited company for future distribution.

  • So this is why I have 35 is important in terms of the changes that are coming in.

  • I have to Slade's to take you through.

  • So just again a remainder.

  • This all happens from six of April next year on that, let's say, in the private and public sector arrangements will be largely harmonized.

  • There are some subtle deputies that will take you through.

  • No importantly, the end client on not the personal service company will know determine the ire 35 status off on assignment so they will decide the status often individual worker working on an assignment.

  • There's an exemption for any private Take n clients who are considered to be small now.

  • These won't be affected by the changes.

  • No, the criteria for a small organization follows broadly.

  • The companies that definition of a small company, which is an annual turnover of lesson about 10 million bones about it towards the lesson.

  • About five million phones on less than 50 employees, so you can see that the new rules are directed family, medium and large size organizations.

  • Importantly, there is no such exemption from public sector, so that means regardless of size, these rules will continue to apply so a little bit more detail.

  • What these changes mean going forwards s o, they incline.

  • There's no responsible for issuing something called a status determination statement or on STS.

  • I know what that STS must include is the walkers employment status following and I have 35 assessment on the inside.

  • I have 35.

  • Are they outside?

  • I have 35 that that's in very simple terms.

  • What the statement will see on also must set out the reasons for reaching the employment status conclusion on again.

  • That's important so that the end worker can can review the reasons behind the status contamination statement.

  • This means that the end client is not responsible for the deduction on demon off all employment taxis.

  • So that means for the avoidance of dotes income tax employees, national insurance on employers, national insurance.

  • But an agency is involved in the labor supply chain, which often is for their personal service.

  • Cos then they become the fee pier on again.

  • That's Ah, Tim that you'll see in the HMRC Gayden surrounding the euro's S O.

  • The agency is responsible for the deduction.

  • A payment off all employment taxis.

  • You may be a way that this currently of 5% expanses of loans for pierce of service companies working on a statement on and say I certify this will no be removed, going forwards and again that harmonizes with the arrangements in the public sector.

  • So what do you do about your existing private sector assignments?

  • Eso.

  • Until March 2020 the personal service company will still responsible for determining the iron fortified status off its assignments.

  • So the personal service company no should be taken steps to underthe understand that I am 35 status off.

  • Those existing say mints on should carry out reviews of each contract on the working practices surrounding the same and as new contract had entered, then to continue after April 2020.

  • It's really important that use appears of service Company feigned out what the end client is doing to introduce these new rules.

  • Eso you must ask you then, client what they have going to provide these status determination, statements what they're doing to establish an appeals process.

  • If you don't agree with the S d s decision on the new rules are low for this appeals process.

  • You must ask them what they're doing to a coat for tax liabilities on submitting the information via HMRC View, Same information system again.

  • Understand what's going on surrounding the deduction of employment taxis on an important point.

  • Quite subtle.

  • This it's what they're doing to pay you for what done after fifth of equal.

  • So that's what in the lead up to the end of March, that speed for after the first, the fifth of April.

  • This is important because the legislation bates from the Sex of April, and if the makeup, even after six, the vehicle for what?

  • That in March, then they should be deducting employment taxes.

  • If it's inside, I are 35 so that there's a lot to think about intent of her.

  • You of Pierce of service company?

  • No.

  • Engages with your then client our own understanding how these new rules are going to be introduced in practice on.

  • Also, find out if the small business exemption applies to your client.

  • In that case, you're PSC.

  • We're still responsible for the I certify Determination.

  • Stay out of it.

  • If you want about the online to the HMRC has published over the last couple of years, there's no in the check of employment status to or sext on.

  • What you can do with that, too, is a review.

  • The status of your existing assignments, def.

  • Running through a few simple questions over the contractual aspects of your statement on the working practices as well.

  • On the two will give you a note.

  • Come whether you're insane, Rosado to five or whether more information is needed on and you can't comes of you based on the information pervaded.

  • H.

  • Marcie recognizes the Tunis you updated on the latest of head on.

  • That is that that will happen by the end of 2019 obviously, we're getting towards that time.

  • No eso.

  • We haven't seen any changes to the two as yet, but hopefully that will be updated to be a little more sophisticated as the private sector assignments have run through it.

  • Importantly, HMRC says it will stand by the outcome of the cyst assessment unless it's on compliance.

  • Check feigns that the information and put into the two is an accurate, But this is a three area based on recent tribunals on, and it's difficult to see whether the outcome will be stood by or not by HMRC.

  • So again, still imagine case law on this.

  • So watch this space.

  • If you didn't know about any of this, I would recommend that you see a specialist review of you the same contract and working product actresses.

  • You know, counting could do that or seek advice from unemployment specialist.

  • This will help prove that you've taken reasonable care to establish the I offer.

  • If I status of your assignments, Brilliant personal service company is still required to provide that determination on its what's remembering that even after six people, HMRC can still look back and investigate you out the personal service company level so again.

  • It's important you understand precisely the status of each assignment you've entered into.

  • Looking ahead of a couple of Slade's on your teacher say mints.

  • On importantly, how information is going to be shared across the labor supply chain.

  • So from the outset, the iron fortified determination and its rationale which are major than one of the previous laid it must be cascaded toe all of the parties in the labor supply.

  • Chin s Oh, there's a status determination statement which must see the incline pervades the STS that it led to the PSC worker.

  • All parties in the labor supply chain must cascade.

  • That statement to the Nets contractual party on all of this must happen before the first payment is made to the PSC worker.

  • Uh, each Marcie recognizes that that are often lengthy and complex supply chains on.

  • There's a shortcut that the end client but simply inform the few pier which may be the agency on the walk of directly off the STS statement.

  • Importantly, the responsibility for preparing that STS remains with the end client because the other one that knows the working practices on near that ones that was the basis of the contract.

  • There's also the duty of reasonable care when cutting out these assessments on what that means in practice is that the client must take independent legal advice when it pervades the STS on it must make a flu assessment on an individual basis so you can see that they're seediest resource implications for businesses who used past service companies heavily to cario.

  • Individual assessments for each of, say, a salmon that enters into the appeals process is going to be client lead, eh?

  • So that means the personal service company raises concerns that may have to the end client on that includes the outcome of the STS assessment.

  • So if you disagree with it, you raise it with your head crime.

  • The in client then considered the evidence that you provide us a PSC, and then it will provide a written response to you.

  • With the outcome over, I should happen within a fortified the planning horizon from raising the concerns you actually issuing At the outcome of the appeal conclusion, a few of the PSC still disagree what each Marcie says that you can attempt to be claimed tax and national insurance overpaid by something called the end of year HMRC procedures.

  • It's completely vig on how this all up in practice.

  • We're unsure about that at me.

  • Really.

  • You have to inform it each time I see that you don't dispute with a client on your currently no handing over tax and national insurance again, I think we need to see more detail on that.

  • But I sent the Gators published by each of our C, so I thought I would bring it to your attention.

  • No, we had a couple of questions about overseas clients and hold out there that may open it going forward.

  • So I got a couple of Slade's or not.

  • All I can see is that this is an extremely complex area of HMRC.

  • Gaitan's on.

  • I've actually put on the Slade what the gate says and the italicized What's there?

  • I won't be no.

  • But what each of Marcie's getting up in terms of what it says here is that the legislation does apply to overseas companies on the intend to treat these oversized overseas companies as UK residents for the partitions of issuing the status determination statement on disrupting the relevant taxes.

  • How this is going to be enforced.

  • We just do not know yet on.

  • I believe that's yet to be established.

  • Eso each Marcie gave this is seeing the final remark.

  • There is less than clear.

  • However.

  • If you go to the next fight, I'll give your interpretation of what that may mean.

  • So if you haven't overseas End Client, which engages the UK beast PFC directly, it's the overseas client, which determines the iron fortified status of the assignment on issues the STS.

  • But an agency in is involved.

  • The agency will be responsible for issuing the STS from the incline based on its determination.

  • On day will pass that on to the worker on the personal service company at the UK based PCs Peed on a gross bases directly by the incline.

  • I know titles are deducted at all.

  • It could be argued that the PSC know becomes a few pier on.

  • It needs to account for the UK employment taxis, but frankly, we really do not know.

  • So you need to see expert advice in any scenario where an overseas client is not providing a status determination statement or is not deducting employment taxes, so you need to look at each case on its merits.

  • that there is no blanket sort of answer to these questions.

  • If the fee Pierre is an overseas based agency on the Empire and its overseas appears that the few Pierre i.

  • E.

  • The agency welded up the employment taxis.

  • But if the incline is if you peer and it's based in the UK but with maybe overseas premises, et cetera, it's the end client, which appears the employment tightly.

  • So that's a relatively simple scenario.

  • So bringing all that together if you have, obviously, is clients.

  • You please find out holy and implementing these new rules on it's important that you reviewed your contracts unlocking practices in these scenarios with you overseas clients on, please seek expert that base, if you can.

  • I think it's also worth just remaining you off what each amounts he looks for if it decides to investigate any of your assignments at the PSC level.

  • So the main factors are on the left and say that the Slade eso look firstly whether there's ah, a personal service involved in the contract.

  • So the book see whether you can send in a substitute other way that whether you can a sane parts of the contract to other parties.

  • So is this a contract?

  • Four Service's?

  • Are you self employed or is a contract off service I employed?

  • So that's an important factor in the HMRC.

  • Will look into that.

  • Our second.

  • If actors on the knee tha that helped with the overall conclusion and lose it in there Hans, eight of us late, it will also look into control.

  • So who controlled the assignment?

  • Who decides when the work was carried out?

  • For instance, is it doing a working bee or can you, as the person service company, carryover work any day?

  • Were you Cario?

  • Do you have to go to a client premises or can you carry out a tribunal offices?

  • What you do data T s.
