Help to decide the status of your workers
The online tool called Check Employment Status for Tax gives HMRC’s view of a worker’s employment status, based on the information provided. It can also be used to check if changes to contractual terms or working arrangements may alter a worker’s employment status.
One use of it is to show if HMRC will consider the worker as employed or self-employed for tax and National Insurance contributions purposes. How a contract should be treated is not a choice but is decided based on the facts and it is important to make sure that the correct status is chosen as successful challenges to employment status by HMRC can be costly.
