Government to postpone IR35 reform amid Covid-19 fallout

On 17 March, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Steve Barclay, announced that the extension of the more rigorous compliance regime for the IR35 rules to the private sector will now be delayed until 6 April 2021.

This announcement comes less than a week after Chancellor Rishi Sunak confirmed in his Budget that the new regime would apply to the private sector from 6 April 2020.
