Recruiter Reveals...IR35: Countdown to April 2021

Welcome to our first episode of Recruiter Reveals All!

The countdown to compliance has started, and there’s no turning back: the wildly unpopular Off-Payroll Rules for medium-and-large companies go into force in April 2021. In this half-hour podcast, Recruiter’s first, subject matter expert Dave Chaplin of IR35 Shield tells all to Recruiter magazine Editor DeeDee Doke about the ins and outs of what changes businesses need to make and the administrative potholes to watch out for before the deadline.
