The problem

The IR35 landscape is becoming more challenging

From April 2021 private sector clients will carry IR35 risk and will decide IR35 treatment. Many have started implementation, and it’s not yet clear how they will respond to the government-announced 12 month delay

Government clients have already implemented IR35

Demonstrating substitution is a key component of keeping an assignment outside IR35
