OBJECTIVES

Businesses which use the services of freelancers who operate through a Personal Service Company have a big decision to make over the coming months.

From April 2020, medium and large companies, as defined by the terms of the Companies Acts, will have to operate the “IR35” rules, (more correctly the “intermediaries legislation”), in cases where they form the opinion that, in the absence of their PSC, the individual providing their services to the business would be an employee of the company.

Businesses will need to prepare thoroughly and decide on their approach. Preparation is going to be key and identifying the key individuals in the organisation who are going to have to cope with this problem and ensuring they are properly prepared, trained up and informed about the new rules is a serious issue facing many business over the coming months.
