Join the Association of Recruitment Consultancies in a high level debate.

On 11th December the Government published draft legislation in the Finance Bill 2013 to extend the IR35 tax rules, first introduced in 2001, which apply to contractors operating through limited companies or “intermediaries”.  The objective is that the tax rules should now apply wherever a contractor is engaged as an office holder, broadly speaking in a & lsquo;position’.

This is potentially an issue of great interest to hirers of contractors and freelancers, whether direct or through recruitment agencies, not least because of likely “knock on” cost implications as higher levels of tax become applicable but also because changes may be requested to engagement arrangements and thus administration. The proposed new law is subject to a consultation that ends on 6th February, and so time is of the essence if the government is to be influenced to make any changes.

To assess the impact of the government proposals and to gather industry opinion, the Association of Recruitment Consultancies (ARC) is holding a & lsquo;think tank’ meeting at the London Chamber of Commerce Queen street London  on 22nd January 2013 at 2pm to 4pm. Present will be spokespersons from HM Treasury, the Professional Contractors Group (representing freelancers), recruitment law experts Lawspeed, procurement, HR and end user hirers of contractors, agencies and other interested parties.

We cordially invite you and/or colleagues to attend this free meeting to participate in the debate and have your say.
