Changes to the off-payroll working rules - known as IR35 - take effect in the private sector on 6 April.
Nearly four in 10 (38%) mid-sized organisations are not prepared for the introduction of IR35 off-payroll working changes, with just under three weeks to go until they take effect.
The Government has published new guidance about how it will support organisations seeking to comply with upcoming off-payroll (IR35) changes.
There should be no further delay in addressing the long-standing 'unfairness' of contractors paying less tax than employees in situations where their work should be classified as an employment relationship, the government has said.
The changes to off-payroll working rules in the private sector, known as IR35, will go ahead in April 2021 after MPs voted against an amendment to delay them for at least two years.
A proposed delay to the extension of IR35 rules to the private sector has failed to gain support in parliament.
The IR35 rules are 'riddled with problems, unfairnesses, and unintended consequences', according to a House of Lords committee looking into the impact of off-payroll working reforms.
The House of Lords committee looking at the proposed extension of IR35 regulations to the private sector has written to the Treasury with a list of damning concerns about the proposed reforms.
