Professional Contractors' Group's Chris Bryce to work with Office of Tax Simplification

CHRIS BRYCE, the chairman of the Professional Contractors’ Group, has been drafted on to the panel tasked with unravelling the complexities of the UK’s tax system.

The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) consultative committee will review small business taxation, including the controversial freelancer rules known as IR35.

Accepting the invitation to join the OTS, Bryce was pleased that the UK’s 1.4m freelance workers would be represented.

Bryce said: “This is a crucial time for freelancers. PCG will continue to offer the OTS every resource available to us and we will be advised by leading tax expert, Chris Sanger, from Ernst and Young.

“It is our objective that this process will produce a fair and effective solution for all small businesses.”
