IR35 for Freelance Journalists - A Looming Liability?
IR35 is tax legislation which has always been controversial and it is about to get worse.
The government wants to make end clients responsible for determining IR35 status, which will result major disagreements between freelance journalists and other contractors working for themselves and the organisations which hire them.
Presented by Andrew Chamberlain, Deputy Policy Director for the IPSE, this live broadcast session will address the key issues you may be about to face.
