IR35 changes: what you need to know


The new IR35 regime will finally come into force in April following a year’s delay - but do you know what it means for productions?

The changes will require production companies to assess the employment status of individuals engaged via loan out companies, with the tax liability shifting to the employer if the assessment is not undertaken with reasonable care.

Join Ceri Stoner, Partner at Wiggin LLP, who will guide you through the essential information in a seminar run by ScreenSkills in association with The Production Guild on Wednesday 24 February 2021 at 1pm.

Stoner works with companies in the media and tech sectors across all aspects of their taxation requirements, from compliance to special projects.

Who it's for

This course will be useful for employers, hirers and professionals who need clarity on their employment tax status. 

What it covers

  • what the tax changes are;
  • what the risks and implications are for productions / production companies;
  • how to assess employment status, and the process of communicating the decision;
  • what reasonable care is.
