Today, 30 May 2017, IPSE is unveiling a striking campaign for the UK General Election on Tuesday 30 May.
How to approach the burgeoning ‘gig economy’
Today IPSE released our manifesto: A Contract with the Self-Employed.
Getting on and doing business should be simple wherever you choose to live, but poor infrastructure is holding back the self-employed and, ultimately, the UK economy.
With 8 June drawing ever nearer, IPSE has researched the impact of the burgeoning self-employed sector on the election.
A statutory definition of self-employment must be created to end confusion and ensure working for yourself is viewed as a positive, valuable way of working, IPSE called for in its official submission to the Taylor Review of modern employment practices.
Driven by Brexit and government policy, the confidence of the UK’s two million freelancers has fallen to the second lowest level on record, according to research conducted by IPSE.
The Government’s plan to slash the tax-free dividend allowance from £5,000 to £2,000 from April 2018 has been dropped ahead of the General Election.
Well who saw that one coming!? Just as we were getting over our chocolate Eggs and the terrible traffic jams of Easter, out pops Mrs May onto the steps of Downing Street to take us all by surprise with the announcement of a snap General Election for the 8th June!
