We Do Everything Required To Ensure Your Business Is Protected.

If HMRC were to reclassify just one self-employed subbie as an employee with an average weekly pay of £1,000, your liability would surpass £9,500 in a year. For a group of 15 self-employed subbies, this liability would escalate to over £136,000. These staggering amounts exclude potential HMRC fines, unpaid interest charges, or legal costs associated with challenging HMRC.

How We Do It

Every month, HMRC initiates tens of thousands of new tax investigations aiming to generate additional revenue. If HMRC decides to take you to a Tax tribunal the decision can take over a year to be reached and this process can be an extremely worrying time for business owners. 

Your monthly CIS300 report provides HMRC inspectors with comprehensive information to pinpoint any vulnerabilities in your existing CIS arrangements. It discloses precise details about who you pay, when, and how much to your subcontractors. By submitting this information you inadvertently provide HMRC with the necessary ammunition to scrutinise your activities. Additionally, you are required to confirm monthly that you have verified the employment status of everyone under CIS.

Contractwise removes your risks by engaging subcontractors directly to ensure that full CIS compliance has been carried out. You can then focus on growing your business without the stress of an HMRC tax investigation or subcontractor reclassification.

Protection from Employment Tribunals

Companies can face huge financial risks when engaging subcontractors with average tribunal fees of more than £8,000, not to mention the stress of tribunals which can take up to 12 months. Contractwise offers full protection against any such claim and the associated financial risks when dealing with any tribunal claims.
