HMRC writes to first batch of contractors facing IR35 probe

The first contractors to face investigation under HMRC’s new IR35 tax regime have received letters telling them that they have been identified as potentially falling within the scope of the rules. The letters ask contractors who believe the IR35 rules do not affect them to provide supporting evidence for that claim.

There is more on the IR35 letters at the ContractorUK website

You may wish to note that the 47-page guidance notes issued by HMRC have not changed despite the rules having been revised.
