Future of anti-IR35 battle unclear

It remains unclear whether the Professional Contractors Group will continue its anti-IR35 fight through the courts.

The PCG this morning(Thursday)heard that its latest efforts to overturn IR35 in the Court of Appeal had failed.

The Court then refused leave to appeal to the House of Lords, which would be the next step in the British courts.

But the PCG was told it could not appeal the High Court decision upholding IR35 earlier this year but went ahead and won leave to go to the Court of Appeal.

The PCG is pledged to fight IR35 with case law but it could by-pass British courts and go to the European Court of Justice.

When the group first began its battle it was reported to have a fighting fund of Pounds 500,000. It remains to be seen whether the membership would mandate more expenditure on expensive barristers to continue the battle.
