Firstly, I need to say that I'm amazed (and gratified) by the huge response to our previous article on the threat that IR35 poses to both public sector digital transformation and PSC intermediaries like Be-IT and many of our competitors. It's the most, by some margin, that we've had to any one topic and shows just how important this is.
Secondly, I would like to draw everyone's attention to that fact that there is a petition* on the government's website that seeks to have the IR35 legislation scrapped. We need as many people as possible to sign this please.
You can do so here: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/170118
The government must respond to any petition that gets over 10,000 signatures. This one has got over 16,000 at time of writing, but, more importantly, any petition that gets over 100,000 signatures has a chance of being debated in parliament. That's our target. So please can you share/encourage/cajole everyone you know to sign this!
