Arguably the biggest change in employment status in decades, the new IR35 regulations come into force for the private sector in April 2021 and employers must be prepared or face punitive fines. The changes will have a profound impact on HR, payroll and finance functions.

This round-up of the key challenges is a must for all medium and large employers to ensure you understand all the new IR35 changes and how to implement them. There will be fines for non-compliant organisations, so it's imperative to prepare properly well before the deadline of April 2021.

Following over 8 IR35 planning and preparation conferences for employers and multiple IR35 planning roadshows, this free one hour online webinar draws on our extensive network of true experts in this field to help guide you through the challenges and help you put together a workable and comprehensive action plan.
