IR35 is anti-avoidance tax legislation designed to root out so called disguised employees*. This, as usual, can get complicated but my rudimentary understanding is that it's trying to stop people getting paid indirectly for their work. For example someone who gets paid through their own limited company when they should be paid direct, as an employee, from the client their de-facto employer. Basically any situation where money is diverted simply to avoid some or all of the tax liability.
As you probably know the whole thing has been widely discussed in the press what you may not know is the the government has provided some help by way of a 'Check employment status for tax' page at gov.uk. After some disclaimers the page sets you off on a tick box survey designed to clarify personal/organisational tax status.
If you hire workers, or hire out workers to others or are yourself a worker the form helps you make an informed determination as far as where the tax burden sits.
