Gross Payment Status:

Since the introduction of the CIS scheme, HMRC has been quick to withdraw Gross Payment Status from contractors who have failed to meet their obligations.

Self Employed Status:

You cannot elect to be self-employed or employed. It all depends on the actual mechanics of the relationship with the worker and the person who is engaging the worker.

To put a self-employed contract in place, it is important to discuss the actual facts of the working relationship. We can use the basis of this discussion to identify any potential issues, of where the self-employed status could be challenged by HMRC. We can then advise on revisions to the working arrangements to support the required status.

Examples of Items that need clarifying to determine the status would be control, independence, substitution, risk and equipment.

By clarifying the working status at the start of the engagement, then it would help to mitigate any disputes about this with HMRC at a later stage.
