Arnold Ayton is qualified as a Chartered Accountant under the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA), although I currently hold a practicing license under the Institute of Financial Accountants (IFA). I understand Arnie is a very busy accountant and has a lot on his plate. As a result, he can sometimes take a little bit of time to respond during busy periods. However, he has always been prompt with urgent matters and we have not overrun any deadlines whilst we have had him as an accountant. For the non-important requests we make, perhaps an automated/stock reply saying that he’s seen our message and is getting around to the topic would be appreciated rather than feeling obliged to answer with a fully formed response.

The IR35 legislation has been introduced to ensure that these workers pay broadly the same tax and National Insurance contributions (NICs) as an employee. IR35 has been in force for over 10 years but the key change from April 2020, is the change in ‘who is liable’ for non-compliance from the individual or contractor to the organisation engaging the worker.? Before April 2020, a contractor/worker not currently on PAYE (i.e. a maintenance person) working for your business/organisation, is deemed to fall under this legislation and is challenged by HMRC, the individual / contractor would be liable for all the underpaid tax and a Class 1 National Insurance (Employer as well as Employee NIC) liabilities. After April 2020, a contractor/worker not currently on PAYE (i.e. a maintenance person) working for your business/organisation, is deemed to fall under this legislation the underpaid tax and associated penalties will fall on the business, not the contractor.
