Outside IR35 banned
Official statement from Vodafone:
Vodafone believes its obligation, and that of all of its suppliers, is to pay the amount of tax legally due in any territory, in accordance with the rules set out by governments.
Following the extension of IR35 to the private sector, in order to provide certainty to our business and ensure that we are compliant with the revised legislation, Vodafone has concluded that where we are engaging contractor resource to supplement our employee workforce, we will only do so via methods where PAYE is operated. We have made this decision following a thorough review of the current contractor base, appropriate advice and consultation.
