The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed has warned that the government’s review into the new off-payroll working rules does not go far enough.
The government has not paused the roll-out of the changes, has not said that the review will be independently chaired and has allocated what the IPSE believes to be a ‘disappointedly’ short period for the review – until mid-February.
Andy Chamberlain, Deputy Director of Policy at IPSE commented, “The review announced today is disappointingly hasty and inadequate.
“Not only has the government not said it will pause the changes, it has also allocated far too little time for a full review and said nothing about selecting an independent chair.
“Such a limited review would leave the freelance sector floundering.
“Right now, across the sector, contractors and freelancers are panicking at the prospect of these disastrous changes.”
