Government Pressing Ahead with IR35 Private Sector Reforms

Despite widespread advice to postpone and review the IR35 private sector reforms, the British Government are determined to go ahead as planned. The new Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, has confirmed that the IR35 private sector reforms will be announced during the 2020 Budget announcement on Wednesday 11 March. This will be the first budget for Boris Johnson's Conservative party and it will need to raise funds for the ambitious spending plan that is expected.

How successful the IR35 reforms will be in terms of raising valuable funds for the Government are definitely up for debate and furthermore would a failure ever be admitted?
