Thanks I think this is more of a tax than an employment law query though so I will transfer this to our Tax section. Please do not reply in the meantime and also please do not leave a rating for my response as I have not answered your query. Thanks
Thanks for your question, - I am Sam and I am one of the Uk tax experts.
It would seem to me that you are being paid through an umbrealla company (as if you are a limited company) but then still should only be having your tax. national isurance and the employers national insurance (based on your gross pay) deducted, and NOT the other employees national insurance and tax.
Perhaps you could give me some figures, and I can advsie further, and also advise, what the company that engage your services, advised on of, when you posed this situation to them
