Eamonn Holmes has become the latest TV star to lose an expensive IR35 tax case with HMRC.

Half of all contractors plan to leave their posts ahead of scheduled changes to the way that IR35 ‘off-payroll’ rules are applied in the private sector.

Changes to the off-payroll rules are due to take effect in April, when large and medium sized companies will be made responsible for judging a contractor’s employment status and potentially subtracting income tax and national insurance from their monthly pay.
