The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid has announced that the major review of all aspects of self-employment, promised in the Conservatives' manifesto, will include the proposed extension of the Off-Payroll working rules to the private sector from April 2020.
Speaking on Radio 4's Money Box Election Special, Sajid Javid said that, as part of the review, he wanted in particular to look again at the proposed changes to the IR35 rules. He said:
'I value the work of consultants and I want to make sure that the proposed changes are right to take forward.'
The government's announcement confirms that the review will concentrate on improving the implementation of the April 2020 rule changes rather than delaying them.
