Stop the Off-Payroll TaxCampaign
The campaign, led by ContractorCalculator and supported by leading sector organisations and businesses, is working hard to protect the livelihoods of contractors but we need your support to help Stop the Off-Payroll Tax.
So the campaign is calling on contractors and freelancers (and businesses and recruiters who rely on them) to support the campaign!
Campaign Objectives – help save the flexible workforce
The roll-out of the off-payroll Tax will cause huge damage to the UK labour market, some of which has already been realised. The #StoptheOffPayrollTax campaign’s primary aim is to prevent these changes happening, but there are numerous possible outcomes that would hugely benefit all concerned.
The Campaign has two key objectives:
- To stop the introduction of the damaging off payroll rules to the private sector.
- For the Government to instead launch a much-needed review into the deeply flawed IR35 legislation and to come up with the right way to recognise contracting in the tax system.

Damaging Impact of the Off-Payroll Tax
Having imposed the ‘off-payroll working rules’ upon the public sector, HMRC is intent on enforcing a private sector rollout, and plans to do this by April 2020. This is despite the impact of the reforms in the public sector, which demonstrated its crippling impact on public sector projects and industry as a whole.
The Government’s proposed changes would:
- Force thousands of contractors into false-employment
- Expose self-employed contractors to excessive taxation
- Drive up project costs significantly
- Deprive UK industry of essential access to key skills
- Further incite tax non-compliance and tax evasion

The off-payroll (IR35) legislation, that could mean contractors lose up to 30% of their income, is not yet law. Many MPs in the previous Parliament raised concerns and do not wish the Off-Payroll Tax to be introduced. So it’s by no means a done deal and we have a chance of stopping this – and it’s vitally important to contractors and contracting that we do so. We hope that by persuading enough politicians and parties of the damage it will do, that we can prevent the Off-Payroll Tax, but this requires YOUR support, both in terms of campaigning and also financially. So please do contribute to the campaign TODAY!
