IR35 Forum

HMRC works with the IR35 Forum to improve the way in which IR35 is administrated. The IR35 Forum is a group of external stakeholders who meet regularly with HMRC. It was established following the Government's commitment at Budget 2011 to make clear improvements to the way IR35 is administered. This followed the publication of the Office of Tax Simplification's (OTS) review of Small Business Tax. The members of the IR35 Forum include taxpayer representatives and professional advisers with expert knowledge and experience of how the legislation operates in practice and how it affects key taxpayer groups. The IR35 Forum meets on a quarterly basis.
