Status Issues - Employed or self employed?
In 1994, Peter Lawson & Co was born primarily as a result of the issues surrounding whether technicians within the Film & TV industry should be classed as employed or self employed.
We challenged HMRC’s assertion that such technicians were employed, and were instrumental in obtaining ‘Schedule D’, i.e. self employment status, for a number of technicians.
Since then we have regularly been involved in the settlement of these issues with HMRC.
The factors which determine whether you are deemed to be employed or self employed are essentially the same, irrespective of the industry in which you work. So if you’re a ‘subby’ doing all your work for one company, or a freelance consultant undertaking long term contracts with one company, the same criteria will apply to you.
So probably a good reason to get in touch!
