At one point it seemed as though HMRC’s radar was focused solely on the Construction Industry, but now their gaze has fallen hard and fast on limited company contractors (yet again). In the last month Accountax have seen a 162 % increase in the number of IR35 enquiries instigated by HMRC.

The recent move from the Special Commissioners to the Tax Tribunal brought about a number of changes to the processes leading up to, and including, a hearing. One such change is the right to request, or accept an offer of, an independent review (once Determinations and Decisions have been raised) before the case is to be listed for a hearing.
