BBC Presenters want immediate action on IR35

The BBC’s director-general, Tim Davie, has been urged by more than 160 BBC local and network presenters to resolve the “ongoing catastrophe of IR35”. Many BBC staff have accused the corporation of forcing them to set up special tax vehicles to allow the BBC to avoid paying millions in national insurance contributions, only for staff to then be pursued by HMRC for unpaid tax bills. A letter addressed to Mr Davie states that the current scandals engulfing the BBC and past conduct indicate a “lack of moral courage and unwillingness to deal with problems of its own making”. The letter goes on to add: “We want you to admit this situation was the fault of managers and not presenters and set out a clear written plan to rectify the situation.”
