HMRC Enquiries

First class representation…

Employed or self-employed? There has never been so much riding on this simple question.  If you make the wrong decision not only do you face the cost of PAYE and National Insurance, HMRC will add interest and possibly penalties to the bill.  If you are operating in the construction industry your gross payment status is in jeopardy, and there is a fine of up to £3,000 per month just for getting employment status wrong.

HMRC Self Employment Status

Companies that use the services of a self-employed labour force are vulnerable to HMRC. It is not uncommon for HMRC to challenge the ‘employment status’ of subcontractors, arguing that workers are in fact employees. This can be very costly and disruptive to business because it could potentially result in thousands of pounds in additional national insurance and possibly taxes on the intended “employer”.
Chartergates have a proven track record of solving such issues and have successfully defended many status disputes and tax inquiries. Please keep in touch with us for more details.

An expert at hand…

If HMRC are giving you a hard time – don’t panic.  Thankfully, help is at hand.  At Chartergates you will be represented by an expert who knows exactly what the law says about employment status (read our Top 10 Myths) and will defend your position fiercely. Unlike other advisers we don’t just ‘talk the talk’, we appear regularly in the tribunals defending self-employed status and you can be confident that you will have the best representative at your side.
