IPSE (The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed) welcomes the opportunity to respond to Labour's National Policy Forum and in our submission to the Better Jobs and Better Work Policy Commission, we set out the key challenges and solutions we believe the Labour Party should consider when catering policy towards the UK's self-employed sector.

The sector has the potential to turn the UK into a hub for growth and innovation, yet it remains hampered by fundamental challenges such as difficulty affirming employment status, navigating complex IR35 legislation, late paying clients and barriers to upskilling.

We believe that Labour should aim to remove these major barriers that are currently holding back the sector, establish an environment where self-employment is an aspirational and sustainable career option and in turn unlock untapped entrepreneurial drive and ultimately boost the UK's economic prospects.
