Frequently Asked Questions

Will IR35 be delayed again?

The official response from HM Treasury after a recent petition to delay IR35 until COVID-19 is resolved states:

The Government has already delayed this reform until April 2021 in response to the COVID-19 crisis. However, there will not be a further delay. The legislation has now received Royal Assent, and the reform will be implemented in April 2021 as announced.

Further delaying implementation of these changes would also have other very significant drawbacks. Non-compliance with the off-payroll working rules outside the public sector is expected to cost £1.3 billion per year by 2023/24 if not addressed. As well as the fiscal cost, delay would prolong the fundamental unfairness of taxing two people differently for the same work. Further delay would also extend the disparity between the private and voluntary sectors, and the public sector, where the reform has been in place since 2017.

Can we still work with all freelancers?
What is reasonable care?

This is the standard you need to meet when you performing the tasks the law says you need to do as a client user of a freelancer’s services under IR35. This means being careful to make assessments of working practices carefully. The level of care, and the resource you put behind it,will depend on how well resourced your organisation is.

Please see this detailed guidance from HMRC here.  

Can I just put everyone inside of IR35 to keep HMRC happy?

No.

You must avoid blanket assessments.

These will almost certainly be unlawful and will cause you a lot of headaches. Each assignment must assessed on its own merits.

What are the risks for non-compliance?
Do my freelancers have to use an umbrella company?

No, freelancers on YJ will structure their business in one of three ways:

1. As a Self Employed Sole Trader
2. A Personal Service Company (PSC)
3. Via an Umbrella Company

If you as the client have decided to only engage with freelancers via an umbrella company, you can of course ask them if they are willing to work via an umbrella company for their time with you, however, this is totally their choice.

Is YunoJuno an Umbrella company?
Are there any exemptions?

Yes.

If you’re a small business you may be exempt from IR35. The definition of small business for IR35 exemptions is likely to be based on the definition in the Companies Act, which is met if a company meets any two of the three triggers below:

1. Annual turnover – Not more than £10.2 million
2. Balance sheet total – Not more than £5.1 million
3. Number of employees – Not more than 50

(If your organisation is a different type if structure, please check with your finance team how you should be treated.)
