The question as to whether someone is employed or self employed is not as straightforward as it might at first appear. Many people assume they are free to choose, but this is not the case.
Although there is no clear-cut answer as to how you decide if you are self-employed or not, the following should be on your checklist
Fundamental factors to consider:
- The right to get a substitute or helper to do the job
- Mutuality of obligations.
Other factors to consider:
- Provision of equipment
- Financial Risk
- Basis of Payment
- Opportunity to profit from sound management
- Part and parcel of the organisation
- Right of dismissal
- Employee benefits
- Intention of the parties
- Length of engagement.
These are often matters of general employment law, and not specific tax legislation. There is an enormous amount of Case Law in this area and HMRC are not always right. HMRC do not have the final say on whether somebody is self-employed or not. We can argue your case and take it before the Tax Commissioners for you.
The cost if you get it wrong is enormous. Not only is there the question of employees and employers national insurance, being classified as an employee also gives rise to all sorts of employment rights such as holiday pay, maternity pay, unfair dismissal etc. The decision has to be made by the employer and if you get it wrong it is going to be very hard to recover the back tax, interest, penalties etc from the worker.
We can review your existing arrangements and give you our opinion on whether it will stand up to attack from the Taxman. We can help advise on contracts for services to assist you and advise on how you can maximise your chances.

We at CJB Printing Equipment have used the services of Cheyettes for over 20 years now and have found them very helpful in every aspect
Cheyettes are proud to promote themselves as ‘old-school’ accountants who provide a competent and understanding service to small and medium sized businesses. They are reliable and discreet and keep abreast of the multiple changes in accounting practices which are demanded by the government and which they introduce without any undue fuss or cost.
Their service remains constant as the business is managed by senior, long- term employees and their advice can be relied upon.
We have used Cheyettes Accountants for the past 8 years now , always there to help, 5 star + service , great advise , great team .
Cheyettes were our first choice when we set up our company and over the years have guided us through all of our accounting issues. They deal with our tax returns and payroll and are always ready to explain or advise. David balances cutting edge schemes to reduce tax against practical and sensible advice and has avoided us making any unwise decisions. He has helped us grow our business and kept us on the right side of the taxman.
I have been a client of this company for more than ten years. During this time I have felt totally satisfied with the service I have received. Customer service is excellent, queries are dealt with promptly, and I have received excellent advice & support in running a small business.
We switched to Cheyettes following a recommendation and have been extremely happy with all aspects of their service since. They have proved to be providers of a much stronger, more efficient, service than the London firm we previously engaged. I would recommend their services in the highest possible terms.
The service I have received from David is exceptional, such is his personality and willingness to help that I am pleased to call him a friend as well as a very professional provider of accountancy services, advice and assistance.
I have entrusted Cheyettes for many years with my business & personal affairs, they have proved to be extremely reliable.
Cheyettes are the best accountants I’ve ever used. They are professional and dependable and they get the job done. Above all they have a personal touch which is so valuable in the current climate and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, particularly if you are looking for people that care about having you as a client and are ready to go the extra mile. They helped my wife and I sort out a complex tax situation regarding rental on overseas property, when we were not getting the help needed elsewhere.
We have been using Cheyettes for our accounting for several years now. They have been able to advise us when expanding our business, and are prompt in replying to any queries we have. They provide a professional, yet personal and friendly service to us, I would recommend them to anyone starting up or already in an established business.
We are a family business that has grown over the last 30 years, and Cheyettes have been there for us from the beginning, they have provided us with exceptional service and would highly recommend them.
