Is there any issue with me (UK based business) hiring

This answer was rated:

Is there any issue with me (UK based business) hiring contractors based abroad for very short term online/work-from-home work, if they submit an invoice in the standard way?

Hello,

No, there is no issue with this.

I would recommend that you enter into written terms of engagement with them.

May I help further?

Thanks JA, would this be a simple agreement that states they are independent contractors and the responsibility to ensure tax payments etc. lies with them? Thanks

Yes, that is correct.

All the best
