    During 2017 we helped many of our major public sector clients, and thousands of contractors, deal with the IR35 changes. We also have a wide range of experience working in other countries that have implemented very similar legislation (for example the 2016 DBA Act in the Netherlands).

    In addition, we run webinars, conduct research and write articles on this topic. Our insights and opinions have been quoted in the Financial Times, Computer Weekly as well as contractor press.
