Reversing the IR35 pledge

Ignore everything we just said. That was the government’s message as Jeremy Hunt, the new Chancellor of the Exchequer, reversed his predecessor’s pledge. In an emergency statement on 17th October 2022, Mr Hunt announced that the off-payroll rules will not be scrapped after all. See the Government news story here. Unless things change before you finish reading this article, you should ignore the previous Chancellor’s announcement and continue to follow the off-payroll rules that have been in place since April 2021.
