Freelancers told to delay IR35 filings

The Professional Contractors Group is advising all freelance workers not to submit their P35 returns until after a ruling is made on the potentially precedent-setting High Court dispute.

The case has seen Gordon Stutchbury, a freelance software engineer and former policeman, take on the Inland Revenue in an attempt to overturn a ruling that he must pay more tax under IR35.

A ruling is only expected on the 14 March.

In a statement the PCG said neither freelancers not their accountants should submit their P35s before the Synaptek judgement, although the lobbying group did advice them to do the ‘provisional calculations’.

The deadline for filing P35 returns is the 19 May.
