Revenue: IR35 'uncertainty' now over
The Inland Revenue today said it was delighted at the IR35 verdict, claiming the 'uncertainty' caused by the case was now over.
In an official statement released following its victory over the Professional Contractors Group, the Revenue, said: ‘The government is pleased that the Court of Appeal has confirmed the judgement given in the High Court in April that the service company legislation is not contrary to European Community law.
‘The uncertainty caused by this case can now come to an end. The service company legislation was necessary to ensure fair taxation of all workers, whether or not they use a limited company to arrange their contracts.’
