EMPLOYMENT STATUS

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:

  • Control
  • 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.

TESTIMONIALS

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.

Penny White, Director - Pendennis Clinic Limited

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.
