IR35: Photos from the High Court

PCG chairman Gareth Williams leaving court with press officer Susie Hughes.
Mr Justice Burton, said: ‘With grateful thanks for the extremely full and lucid arguments and research of counsel, which have formed the entirety of the bedrock of my conclusions, I dismiss this application.’
While the PCG lost the case, its chairman Gareth Williams said: ‘I can’t overstate enough the significance of these changes. The landscape of IR35 has changed.
Government pleasure at retaining the right to dictate tax policy was dampened by the mauling the legislation received in court. In its official statement it said: ‘IR35 legislation remains the law of the land.’
Williams:’It will now be easier for our members to show they are genuine businesses.’
