Rebecca is the UK's most prominent thought leader and leading expert in ‘employment status’ including IR35, off-payroll working and the law involving independent contractors and the self-employed for the purposes of tax and employment law. Rebecca has run her own consultancy for the past 20 years covering all employment status issues such as off-payroll in the private and public sector, otherwise known as IR35, s.44 and any issues affecting the self-employed and personal service companies. Rebecca has also just launched a subscription service for updates on employment status: https://www.estupdate.co.uk
Rebecca was also seconded to the Office of Tax Simplification (an independent body of HM Treasury) as a Senior Policy Adviser to advise the government on employment and tax status. She was part of a small team of experts who drafted the Employment Status Review 2015, she then continued to advise on the review of Small Company Taxation leading on the taxation of nano companies and the self-employed. As a result of that review, Rebecca developed the concept of SEPA, providing a vehicle to the self-employed to be able to protect the family home. Rebecca was also a representative on the Cross Government Working Group on Employment Status and has most recently published the review into the taxation of the Gig Economy.
I am a member of the Tax Faculty of the ICAEW and a keen contributor to various professional journals and websites including AccountingWeb, Tax Journal, Taxation Magazine and Contractor UK. I present at conferences and host seminars on employment status and off-payroll.
