The PCG has joined forces with the
Work Foundation to press the
case for recognition of freelancers.
PCG chairman David Ramsden said: ‘The Government pays great attention to the
self-employed when it comes to tax,” continued Mr Ramsden. “IR35, the so-called
‘freelancers’ tax’ is enforced vigorously. Yet many freelancers do not
understand the tax and may be incurring unnecessary financial penalties.’
PCG said it had handled 1,440 IR35 cases on behalf of its members, of which
only four were found to fall within the scope of IR35.
‘This is a waste of taxpayers’ money, tax inspectors’ time and is appallingly
stressful and financially damaging for genuine freelancers trying to run a
business,’ Ramsden added.
