Autumn Statement 2016: How will it affect your business?

Paper and a hand holding a pen on a table

Following the announcement in the Autumn Statement on 24th November, Progressive Recruitment, a trading division of SThree Partnership LLP has reviewed the information provided and noted that there will be changes affecting the placement of contractors/interims in the Public Sector.

From 1st April 2017, the organisation paying the contractor’s limited company will be liable for establishing the contractor’s IR35 status. This could be the recruitment agency or, for contractors engaged directly, the end client or bank partner. Contractors trading through their own limited liability company will also no longer receive the 5% tax free allowance, meaning that even more of their earnings will now be subject to employment taxes. Full draft legislation will be released by 5th December in preparation for implementation on 1st April 2017.

We would be pleased to offer some insight on what has been proposed to our customers so far. However, a follow-up webinar will be scheduled for the 9th December to explain how the legislation could affect your contractors and projects in 2017 and beyond, as well as the solutions we will propose to support this transition.
