It's happening, tech contractors: UK.gov is pushing IR35 off-payroll rules to private sector in Finance Bill

The issue here is that many companies don't understand whats going on and are having to take specialist advice.

The real problem here is that liability shifted from us to them, meaning if they don't understand it or are risk averse they will simply no longer hire contractors. They will use large consultancies it will be more expensive but it is flexible.

So yes this isn't the introduction of IR35 as so many keep stating this is the changing of liability of who pays if an ir35 decision is found not to be true.
