Delaying IR35 reforms is nothing but a short term solution

Just a few weeks ago, the government made a surprising u-turn of sorts with the announcement that planned reforms to private sector IR35 (or off-payroll legislation) would be delayed until 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

As part of a wider package of measures brought in by Chancellor Rishi Sunak to protect businesses from the impact of Covid-19, the announcement was meant to bring some relief to UK freelancers and contractors. By delaying the reforms – which were intended to bring the majority of contractors working through a personal service company (PSC) into income tax and national insurance contributions for the first time from April 2020 – the government would enable businesses to be better-prepared to manage the changes.
