Preventing Employee Reclassification

If HMRC were to audit you and conduct a Status Review of your engaged subcontractors, determining a reclassification of these self-employed individuals as employees, you might find yourself responsible for all outstanding National Insurance and pension payments for each subcontractor. Furthermore, this liability could extend up to six years retrospectively, along with fines and interest.

Protection from HMRC reclassifing your subbies as employees.

If HMRC were to reclassify just one self-employed subbie as an employee with an average weekly pay of £1,000, the 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.
