Self-employed face increased stresses with tax changes IR35 tax changes will be introduced from April 6th meaning off-payroll workers will be treated as full-time employees with companies responsible for setting the tax status of contractors they hire.

The Association of Taxation Technicians said that although some taxpayers may welcome the opportunity to pay their tax closer to real time, “a widespread move to more frequent, in-year calculation of income tax and corporation tax is very tricky to achieve.”
