What is IR35?

IR35 is a tax rule that's been around since 2000. Deduct at source hit the public sector in 2017 and it's coming to private sector in April 2020. The problem the UK Government said it was originally designed to fix was described in the Budget press release at the time:

There has for some time been general concern about the hiring of individuals through their own service companies so that they can exploit the fiscal advantages offered by a corporate structure. It is possible for someone to leave work as an employee on a Friday, only to return the following Monday to do exactly the same job as an indirectly engaged 'consultant' paying substantially reduced tax and national insurance.”
