|Then in the early days of the Liz Truss Government, there seemed to be a light at the end of a long dark tunnel, when a review was promised. Only for that light to be snuffed out almost as quickly as Liz Truss's Premiership.
Some contractors may have held a small hope that the flame might be re-ignited in this Autumn Statement, but it clearly was not to be. So the review of the reform which was repealed, is not making any quick come-back.
So while everyone thinks something should be done, life in the confusing, cintradictory world of IR35 and off payroll issues - continues as 'normal'.
As the Government said after the Autumn Statement:
Off-payroll working rules: maintain 2017 and 2021 reforms (also known as IR35)
Autumn Statement 2022
