Public Sector IR35 and the Apprenticeship Levy: panic, penalty or progress? National Conference

Date: 09 February 2017 Location: London – Venue TBC

A year of radical change

2017 sees the introduction of some of the most radical changes to affect the recruitment and contracting sector in recent years. As a result, the Association of Recruitment Consultancies (ARC), a professional trade association representing recruitment consultancies across all sectors, is hosting a conference to bring together keynote speakers and recruitment law experts to explore the challenges facing recruitment agencies and other sectors.

The Apprenticeship Levy is due to come into effect in April. The Association of Recruitment Consultancies (ARC) has raised concerns over the adverse impact the Levy will have on the recruitment supply sector. As it stands, the charge will be levied on the payroll not only of a supply agency’s own employed staff, but also of their supplied agency workers. As part of its campaign, ARC has written to HMRC to point out the disproportionate impact the Levy will have on the supply sector.

With IR35, it has been confirmed that where a contractor provides services to a public sector hirer and the arrangement is considered to be caught by IR35, the paying party will be obliged to deduct tax and primary NICs from the payment it makes. This means that, for the first time, employer’s NICs will be due on the value of an invoice from a company contractor. The gross amount paid by the paying party will also qualify as part of their pay bill for the purposes of the Apprenticeship Levy. In addition, businesses will be expected to get to grips with the online tool to test contractors’ IR35 status, due to go live in April.

Keynote speakers

ARC has also invited representatives from the FE sector as well as the CBI and HMRC. To be confirmed.

Legal expertise

The programme will include a seminar on IR35 provided by the recruitment law experts Lawspeed.
