IR35 consultation delay puts April 2019 changes to PSCs in doubt

Contractor UK has published insight that the IR35 consultation regarding PSC working in the private sector may mean that any forthcoming legislation is pushed back to April 2020, following the lack of any mention of it in the Spring Statement.
“It may be that they [the government] are waiting for the Employment Status consultation to close in June, or we may not see it [the IR35 consultation] until the Budget [this autumn].
“If the latter,” continued IR35 advisory Bauer & Cottrell’s co-founder Kate Cottrell, “then it is highly unlikely that any roll-out will happen until April 2020.”
