IR35 Update

Updated on Tuesday, 2 May 2017, 677 views

GPC continues to be aware of concerns about the application of IR35 and interpretation of locum employment status, including some employers applying a blanket approach to all locums that they engage, without assessing individuals’ contracting arrangements. The BMA has published guidance on IR35, including a statement which can be used in circumstances where a locum doctor is told by the provider it is engaged by that IR35 will apply without assessment of their circumstances.

Please find an update statement on IR35, which addresses the reports we have received regarding inappropriate threats of referral to the GMC. This will be added to the website at the above link in due course.
