Independent Professionals & Self Employed (IPSE)
UK Contractors have the association of independent professionals & self employed to represent them.
Contractors pay an annual fee to them. IPSE have been fighting the IR35 tax since it was instigated and they were founded in 1999.
IPSE rushed out a press release just before the 2010 election which said that the Conservatives would look at IR35 again if they got elected.
They kept their promise, looked at it and decided to keep it.
Not only that, they decided to sttrengthen it instead to the chagrin of IPSE who used to be called The Professional Contractors Gorup (PCG).[caption id="attachment_833" align="alignnone" width="259"] Independent Professionals & Self Employed (IPSE)[/caption]
