New HMRC measure: Adjusting PAYE liability for IR35 non-compliance
In a significant update to IR35 regulations, HMRC has introduced a measure effective from April 6, 2024, that impacts PAYE liability calculations in non-compliance cases. This policy allows HMRC to offset taxes and National Insurance contributions already paid by a worker and their intermediary against the deemed employer’s PAYE liability. This change aims to rectify the over-collection of tax and National Insurance in cases of non-compliance with off-payroll working rules.
Who it affects
- Individuals providing services through intermediaries, such as Personal Service Companies (PSCs).
- Medium and large-sized clients, partnerships, and public authorities engaging these workers.
- HMRC will now consider taxes already paid by workers and intermediaries when assessing PAYE liabilities for deemed employers.
- This approach aims to distribute liability costs more fairly between workers and deemed employers.
Implications for businesses
- Businesses engaging workers through intermediaries may see reduced PAYE liabilities.
- The measure fosters a fairer tax system, acknowledging taxes already paid by workers.
