Reverse IR35 legislation
The Government had announced that reforms to the off-payroll working rules (also known as IR35) would be repealed from 6 April 2023, but this decision has been reversed by the new Chancellor.
We want these reforms to be reversed, as promised.
We believe IR35 rules are unfair and mean that many people who had previously worked on a self-employed basis are treated as employees. This creates new costs for workers, and is also expensive for businesses to ensure compliance and creates new barriers to people taking on certain work.
It is unacceptable that the Government has reversed it's decision to repeal these reforms. We want the repeal upheld.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
