Newsletter 432: House of Lords issue damning report on IR35
by Newsletter Editor at 10:15 10/04/14 ( Shout99 Newsletter)
The House of Lords has told HM Revenue and Customs to justify the continuing existence of controversial freelancer tax IR35.
After months of taking evidence from Government officials, trade bodies and industry experts, the finding of the Lords report on so-called personal service companies echoes what freelancers and their representatives have been saying for years.

Few of the 16 key recommendations and summary points will make easy reading for the Government or Treasury officials. In summary, their Lordships have told HMRC that it should provide a detailed assessment of the cost and benefits of IR35, which are currently unknown. This casts doubt on the Government's figure of 520 million benefit to the Exchequer. It also refers to the complexity of the measure and the difficulties freelancers face in complying with it.

Shout99 has reported on the analysis and expert reaction to this Report. Further information includes:
