We have considerable experience in assisting the
self-employed provider of services to decide on the status of his business -
whether he should be an employee, or self-employed, or to operate as
partnership or company. Also in the most effective and tax-efficient methods
of organising his remuneration and expenses. This is an area where there are
ongoing changes at the present time and certain basic 'do's and don'ts' are
necessary to avoid the many potential pitfalls.
The question of whether a person is actually self-employed or not is a
further problem area; we have considerable experience, and success, in
dealing with cases where H.M. Revenue & Customs have sought to challenge a
person's self-employment status.
