The reality of IR35 – House of Lords Sub-Committee review

A note from our Commercial Director, Charlie Cox on the contribution required for the House of Lords Sub-Committee review.

SThree will soon be delivering its response to the House of Lords Sub-Committee review of the Off Payroll Working rules (IR35) reform in the private sector. This is a huge issue for employers and contractors alike and as the only global pure-play STEM staffing specialist, with our Public Sector experience and PLC status, we believe our voice will be a valuable addition to the discussion.

However, to ensure that our contribution is as accurate and information as possible, we need your help. The Sub-Committee is interested to know about the real-life experiences of individuals and organisations, as well as more general responses, e.g. relating to the impact of these (and predecessor) measures on the tax classification of workers and the broader impact on the labour market. As such, please can we ask that you take 5 minutes to complete the relevant short survey below.

Thank you in advance for your support and for contributing to one of the biggest debates in the industry.
