How does IR35 affect contractors whose contract runs past April 2021?

The reform applies to services provided after 6th April 2021, not to payments made after that date. However, it’s still important that your clients issue a Status Determination Statement as far in advance of this as possible.

If deemed Inside, this will ensure the contractor has the necessary time to make arrangements. For example, they may need to switch to an umbrella company, in which case a new contract would need to be issued and pay rates may need to be negotiated, or they may choose to challenge the decision and look at ways they can work with the client to amend both the contract and working practices to an outside IR35 arrangement.
