IR35 Guidance


Off-Payroll Working in the Public Sector

New rules regarding IR35 in the public sector, otherwise known as ‘off-payroll’ working in the public sector came into force on 6th April 2017. This affects all contractors working for clients who fall under the Freedom of Information Act, whether direct or through an agency.

We have compiled a list of FAQs and key information for you to understand the changes and how they may impact you. 

  • What are the new rules?

  • I have IR35 insurance, do I still need it?

  • If inside IR35, am I entitled to employment benefits?
