When the IR35 reforms were delayed for 12 months in April 2020 due to COVID, many businesses breathed a sigh of relief; it was one less thing to worry about.

With the extra time and perspective we’ve gained, what lessons can be learned from the ‘nearly’ moment in April 2020? And how has COVID changed our previous assumptions about IR35?

In under an hour, we’ll explore some of these key questions, before opening the floor to our audience and asking the question: “How has the experience of COVID-19 altered your approach to/perspective of the upcoming IR35 reforms?”
