Are YOU at risk from HMRC?
The four simple questions:
Do you have a written contract in place with the sub-contractor?
Can the sub-contractor make a loss as well as well profit (answer no if you pay a date rate)
Does the sub-contractor supply their own plant and material?
Can you prove the sub-contractors have other clients?
If you have answered NO to the above questions then HMRC will class these arrangements as employment NOT self-employment!
You could be fined up to 6 years for non-payment of National Insurance for each sub-contractor paid.
Example of HMRC fines:
5 sub-contractors paid £140 per day = £700
(- £165 NI threshold) = £535
Each sub-contractor paid £535 per week
Unpaid National Insurance (14%) of £535 would amount to £75 per person per week x 5 = £375 x 52 weeks = £19,500 unpaid NI per year per person paid x 6 years (back dated) = That amounts to a fine of £117,000 plus interest.
“We are confident that we can rely on EEBS to keep us up to date with any changes and ensure we continue to comply.”
Christine Shearing, Kenwood Groundworks
"J&J Windows & Doors Limited have been using EEBS Limited to pay my colleagues and I for over 6 months and I can quite honestly say that the service EEBS provides is superb! It allows me to remain self-employed, they ensure that I'm verified with HMRC, that my CIS tax is calculated correctly and most importantly that my wages are always paid correctly and on time. I would without a doubt recommend EEBS to friends, family, and colleagues."
James Last, J&J Windows & Doors
“I can call on EEBS when required without the worrying of being tied into an agreement.”
Peter James, Pete’s Landscaping
"We have used EEBS for our wage processing for around 3 years now. We were unhappy with the previous company as they felt 'too big' and did not provide a personal service at all. I am extremely happy with EEBS and can honestly say all their staff are pleasant, conscientious and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I cannot recommend EEBS enough, they thoroughly earn their (reasonable) fees and enable us to focus on more commercial and day to day aspects of running our company."
"We have used EEBS for 7 years now and we cannot fault their service. They keep us up to date with new legislation and regularly carry out compliance reviews. Their staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the processing rates are fair."
"We have used EEBS for 4 months now and what a delightful team. Toni & Colette have been nothing but "BRILLIANT" They have bent over backwards to resolve queries and are always at the end of the telephone... Thank you EEBS for being FANTASTIC!"
"Would highly recommend EEBS, we have used a few payroll companies in the past but by far these guys are the best. Always so helpful and very knowledgeable, such a great company to work with."
