Details

Bulk Insolvencies IR35’ rules are intended to prevent the avoidance of tax and National Insurance Contributions (NICs) using personal service companies (PSC) and partnerships. From April 2016, following changes to the IR35 rules and/or changes in VAT flat rate, some directors of PSCs have cited these changes as the primary reason that their company’s activities have become unviable, therefore leading to liquidation. These tables present bulk insolvencies by industry. This is an adhoc release, figures in this release are consistent with those from the Insolvencies Statistics: April to June 2018 release, published on 27 July 2018
