Many thought the new regulations did not apply to them and so will miss making their first payment.
However, there was some good news for opponents of IR35 this week.
Dawn Primarolo, paymaster general, held out an olive branch, saying ministers would consult further on the scheme.
‘IR35 is the law of the land but discussions about its implementation and the advice that is given would benefit enormously by the policy of engagement of those who are still unhappy with it,’ she said.
Efforts to overturn IR35 in the High Court ended in failure two weeks ago when a judge said he could not rule that the legislation contravened the Human Rights Act.
