The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed has welcomed the new Conservative government and pledged to work with it to ensure it keeps its promise to review IR35 and support the self-employed.
Chris Bryce, CEO of IPSE, commented, “We welcome Mr Johnson’s new government and look forward to working with it in the coming months and years to get a fair deal for freelancers – particularly on IR35.
“We campaigned hard against the disastrous changes to IR35, and we will be holding Chancellor Sajid Javid to his promise to review them.
“To truly support the self-employed, this government must also halt the changes, which are due in April, while a full review is carried out. Time is short: the new Conservative government must act now to protect this vital sector.”
