Walker to face the music in IR35 debate

Assistant director of personal tax at the Inland Revenue, Sarah Walker, will tonight take part in a debate on the controversial IR35 legislation at the English ICA.

Walker has agreed to answer questions and explain what the new regime will mean to thousands of taxpayers.

A lively discussion is expected as Walker will be joined by Francesca Lagerberg of the English ICA’s Tax Faculty. Lagerberg previously described IR35 as ‘badly targeted and daft’.

The agenda for the debate – organised by the London Society of Chartered Accountants – includes discussion of the practicalities of the tax of personal service companies, problem areas, what advisers need to do and the Revenue’s view on the workings of IR35.
