Public sector contractors in the UK are beginning to leave a range of projects ahead of new IR35 tax changes, reports TheRegister.co.uk. From April under the new changes, responsibility for compliance with intermediaries legislation will be the responsibility of the public body or recruitment agency – in short, IR35 affects all contractors who do not meet HMRC’s definition of ‘self employment’. HMRC hopes to recoup £440m through bringing 20,000 contractors into the ‘employment’ remit. Currently, the UK government has 18,000 digital contractors on its books. One source who spoke with The Register noted that half of the 87 contractors working on a defence-related IT project have already left. Further sources have highlighted the significant issues facing public sector across the board should the legislation go through, with NHS trusts in particular losing out. The new legislation is set to come into force from April 6th.
