  1. You're probably not going to like this - we certainly don't

    A short while back - before all the Brexit furore - HMRC announced worrying plans to radically change the way IR35 works for public sector engagements. IPSE will robustly fight the plans announced in the consultation, published on May 26th, which the government intends to come into force from April...

  2. Compliance company advising clients to label all contractors as 'supervised'

    According to the article on today's home page, CXC Global (never heard of them before) are advising end clients to label contractors as 'supervised', or at least that's how it reads. The article refers to an agency that appear to have advised clients to do the opposite. I assume because the...

    It's that time of year again - IPSE CC elections are open for nominations until Thursday at 6pm, with 12 places available. You can read about the election here and you can read about what the CC does and why you should consider it here. So this is my appeal to try to encourage those that are...
