A good assessment process is imperative for end hirers and employment agencies in preparation for the reforms to off-payroll (IR35) in the private sector, due in April 2020.

This is because the reforms would mean that responsibility for determining a contractor’s IR35 status will switch from the contractor to the end hirer whilst employment agencies will be liable in the first instance for the payment of unpaid taxes. This is why it’s so important for end hirers and employment agencies to work together to ensure robust assessment procedures.

In this short video, Chris James, Director of Accountancy Services at JSA and Chairman of the FCSA, explains what a good assessment process looks like.
