Employment Status Disputes

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 Employment Law Disputes

Ensuring the proper legal status for your employees is critical. It can be a complex process that includes determining if they are an employee, worker or self-employed – and this must go beyond what’s stated in their contract. A tribunal will consider both the stated terms of any contract as well as its operational reality.

HM Revenue & Customs often challenges the self-employment of sub-contractors and classifies them as employees, leading to costly taxes and penalties. Fortunately for businesses in this situation, Chartergates Employment Law Dispute Experts have comprehensive knowledge on how to successfully defend against a Status Dispute or tax enquiry from the taxman.
