Hmrc onshore employment intermediaries, false self-employment publicity date 10_12_13 closing date for comments 04_02_14 does this apply to ,e?what is my position?
So who does this document published by hmrc refer to? What is is function?
So employers used to register workers with hmrc as self employed in order avoid paying tax on the employers income and avoid giving them the benefit of sick pay and holiday pay?
So this legislation does not apply to me at all as I am not responsible for anyone other than myself.
My recruitment agent has his payroll system to pay those he finds work for but he insists I need to employ a third party to engage an umbrella company or engage an accountant to become a limited company in order for him to pay me?. How should I respond to him if I want to be paid as a self employed person? And why is he giving me this choice do you think?
he agency claim that the ministry of defence has the right to supervise and direct me if they so choose and because of this I am included in the legislation mentioned in previous correspondence. So does the mod have this right? And would that include me in the legislation as the agency claims? The agency goes on to say that because I fall within the remit of this legislation I can not work self employed. The agency says that if they were to continue to pay me the gross wage as a self employed sole trader and hmrc decide that the mod has the right to some control or supervision , whether the mod excersize that right or not is irrelevant, then hmrc will demand that the agency pay hmrc a self employed persons PAYE plus employers national insurance. Please comment on these claims so I can formulate my response.
Please read the edited version of my last response, thank you.
Please expand on your former response so I can better understand your last response. I have a professional body, are you referring to the British dental association? And I can be supervised by profesionals employed for that service, are you referring to the general dental council as the professionals employed to supervisee me?
What professional body do the audit professional work for in civilian life?
Okay so the point is that I am regulated internally by the mod and therefore no longer able to claim self employed status, is this correct?
Is six months regarded as short?
I have only been given an hourly rate and number hours contracted to work, and then instructed to set up an umbrella company.
My employment agency
So the agencies claim that if they paid me the gross wage or fee as a self employed sole trader and if hmrc decide that the mod has the right to some control or supervision over my work then hmrc will demand that the agency will have to pay hmrc my PAYE plus employers national insurance is false?
Please expand on your last sentence, I don't understand.
Does accepting a job from the mod make me an employee of the agency?
