The introduction of off-payroll rules to the private sector will go ahead as planned next April after an attempt to delay them again failed in the House of Commons.

The reforms of the off-payroll rules to the private sector, which are known as IR35 and have applied to the public sector since 2017, were reviewed earlier this year.

They will shift the responsibility for assessing employment status to the organisations employing individuals. The rules would have applied to contractors working for medium and large organisations in the private sector and were due to come into effect on 6 April this year.

Due to the disruption caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the decision was taken in March to delay the introduction until 6 April 2021. 

An amendment to the Finance Bill brought by a cross-party group of MPs was designed to delay the introduction of the IR35 changes until 2023, but was defeated by 317 votes to 254.

The move to introduce new IR35 rules to the private sector has proved highly controversial, with many claiming that the regulations are too complex and that HMRC's online tool Check Employment Status for Tax (CEST) used to determine whether they apply is flawed.
