Authorities unprepared for IR35

An interim management specialist has warned councils are ‘largely unprepared’ for the introduction of new rules for staff who supply services through their own company.

Managing Partner at Green Park, Neil Lupin, insisted the Government’s proposals would go ahead despite a petition against the overhaul of IR35 practices that has attracted more than 20,000 signatures.

He said: ‘Authorities remain largely unprepared for IR35. Even though the HMRC digital assessment test won’t be ready until March, there is no doubt there will be no delays to implementation.’
