The Client

EEBS work with a specialist building maintenance contractor in the city of London. He engages multi skilled tradesmen through EEBS to provide full spectrum maintenance support for a wide range of landlords across the capital.

The client supplies all of the plant, equipment, and materials for the tradesmen, who are paid an agreed daily rate. All are registered with and paid through.

The issue

The client supplies all of the plant, equipment, and materials for the tradesmen, who are paid an agreed daily rate. All are registered with and paid through HMRC’s CIS. The initial reaction of the client to the introduction of the Onshore Intermediaries Legislation of 2014, was that they could not pass the direction supervision or control tests within the legislation, so they would have to engage all of their tradesmen through PAYE.

Our Solution

Our comprehensive assessment process was able to highlight risk factors that caused this potential problem within their former working practices. We were then able to facilitate the restructuring of the clients working practices, including the adoption of written works orders, to achieve a documented and fully compliant system. His skilled Tradesmen can still be paid through the CIS, with the requirements for any unskilled labour to now be engaged under a traditional, agency supply agreement.

EEBS Solutions include:

  • To maintain the flexibility of a self-employed workforce without interference from HMRC
  • Not to be subjected to all of the costs associated with an employed workforce, including holiday pay and national insurance.
