BESA welcomes IR35 delay

The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) has welcomed the decision made yesterday by the Government to delay the start date of IR35.

In response to the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the government announced that the new off-payroll tax reforms (IR35) due to be extended to medium and large businesses in the private sector in April 2020, will be deferred to 6th April 2021 to help businesses and individuals.

BESA head of employment affairs, Paula Samuels, said “This is a welcome reprieve for our members, many of whom are already suffering the effects from the financial and economic fall-out of coronavirus.”

BESA members can access information and guidance on the IR35 changes on the association website.
