Kingsbridge Annual Survey

The Kingsbridge Annual Whitepaper

Discover invaluable insights into the ongoing effects of the off-payroll rules on the UK economy in Kingsbridge’s 2023 whitepaper.

Foreword from our CEO

“It’s been well-documented that the Off-Payroll reform has had a considerable impact on the UK’s contractor market. We have witnessed a severe drop in demand for limited company contractors or Personal Service Companies (PSCs) that sits in trend with announcements around changes to the IR35 rules, and consequently many of the self-employed have been pushed towards umbrella company usage or permanent employment. The knee-jerk blanket bans of PSCs remain in place for many of the UK’s largest employers, but despite this, opportunities for contractors within scale-ups and forward-thinking corporates who see the value in – even the necessity of – specialised talent, continue to grow.”

– Paul Havenhand, CEO, Kingsbridge
