Off-payroll working report to be published on Monday

22 April 2020

On Monday 27 April 2020 the House of Lords Economic Affairs Finance Bill Sub-Committee will publish its report, Off-payroll working: treating people fairly.

This report examines the Government's proposal to extend the off-payroll working rules - which were introduced for the public sector in 2017 - to large and medium-sized organisations in the private sector from April 2020.

The proposal will mean that businesses will be responsible for deciding whether the contractors they hire are liable to pay income tax and national insurance contributions, and if so, for paying those sums.

On 17 March 2020 the Government announced that these off-payroll working rules would be deferred until 6 April 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report will be available to view or download on the Sub-Committee's website
