Get your public sector contract reviewed, PCG says

If you’re a public sector contractor that has scored low on the Business Entity Tests, you should have a qualified tax specialist review your contract.

So says the the Professional Contractors Group, which recently spent the last five months compiling data on public sector position appointees in the wake of a government review that asked governmental departments to ensure any ‘off-payroll’ staff in their employ met their tax obligations fairly. Now, in the wake of PCG’s exhaustive, nearly half-year research study, the organisation has announced that having an independent contract review conducted by a reputable tax specialist will satisfy a contractor’s obligations to assure their public sector departments – and the government as a whole.

A statement released in conjunction with the results of the PCG research study remarked that the trade body has every confidence that conducting a contract review will remain as the most reliable choice for the lion’s share of freelancers and contractors affected by the government review.  The statement continued, remarking that a contract review that can demonstrate that the rules for ‘dsguised employment’ under IR35 are not applicable, public sector clients of these contractors should be able to rest assured that any tax obligations that may exist are being met properly – and that there is no other necessary action to be taken.

However, the PCG was quick to add that it will continue to keep an eye on the situation. Any changes to the regulatory landscape will be dissected and thoroughly researched, assured the trade body.
