Side letter to consultancy agreement—company and company—pro-client

update: From 6 April 2021, the off-payroll IR35 regime, which has applied since 2017 to public sector entities, is extended to private sector entities (other than those which are ‘small’) engaging a worker via an intermediary, such as a personal service company (PSC), and applies to payments made for services provided on or after that date. Broadly, the effect of the off-payroll IR35 regime is, in relevant situations, to shift the responsibility for assessing whether IR35 applies from the PSC to the end client and, in the event IR35 does apply, to shift the obligation to make deductions in respect of income tax and National Insurance contributions (NICs) and to pay the apprenticeship levy (where due) onto the party that is closest in the relevant contractual chain to the PSC (whether that party is the end client which contracts directly with the PSC or another intervening intermediary in more complicated contractual arrangements). For more detail on this extension, see Practice Note: IR35—off-payroll workers.

This Precedent has been reviewed in light of the relevant legislation.
