DETERMINING EMPLOYMENT STATUS
It goes without saying that the determination of a person’s employment status is important in respect to their tax position and employment rights.
Broadly speaking, an individual will fall into one of three categories;
The HMRC have taken steps to make it clear as to what they see as the distinction between the three categories of employment, however it still requires careful assessment and consideration of the facts and the law to establish the status of an individual. An individual who is self-employed will be operating under a contract for services and NOT a contract of service.
HMRC have provided a wealth of information, clear guidelines and rules associated with clarifying how employment status is determined. As they see it there can be NO excuse for not being clear and more importantly correct in your status assessment and subsequent treatment for tax purposes of those that work for you.
HMRC have invested heavily through better systems and policing to clamp down on what they see as ‘false self-employment’ and the avoidance of tax and NI by both companies and workers. Worker employment status is no longer a matter of choice.
