What you will learn

Contractors are under pressure as never before in terms of their tax arrangements.

Contractors can either adopt an unincorporated form or incorporate their businesses. Incorporated businesses potentially fall foul of the so-called IR35 rules that were implemented in 2000.

New rules for contractors in the public sector from April 2017 have had a major impact on the contractor community and they are likely to spread to the private sector.

Who should attend

This course is suitable for accountants and tax advisers who need to advise contractors about the tax implications of their activities.
