WILL YOU APPLY TO STAY IN THE UK FOLLOWING BREXIT?
If the answer is YES, and you are a self-employed Construction worker, because of the recent changes in the laws and regulations governing self-emplyoment your application as a self employed construction worker may be subject to a self employment status check.
What is a self-employment status check?
HMRC want to ensure that all workers in construction are correctly engaged and paid for the work they do. They have formulated a criteria of practice conditions, factors that can be evaluated to establish whether a worker is engaged to work for a company as a genuinely self-employed individual or should more accurately be classified as a PAYE - Employee working under 'false self-employment'. This evaluation exercise is a self-employment status check.
Our intention is not to worry you, but we feel it is important that we make you aware of this important factor and how it may affect your application. You see, the HMRC strongly believes that under the new rules, the vast majority of workers in construction are not truly self-employed and are working under 'false self-employment' as they see it and therefore should in fact be classed as PAYE - employee's.
The process of applying to stay in the UK is an ideal opportunity for the HMRC to check your status.
If the HMRC find you have been working wrongly as self-employed and not PAYE - employed then you may have to pay unpaid back tax and NI and there could even be fines and penalties as well. But most importantly it could also jeopardise your application to stay in the UK.
