Employed or Self Employed
A consultant has different legal entitlements to employees. Also the tax treatment of their earnings is different.
The Inland Revenue, courts and employment tribunal have tests for establishing which individuals are employees and which are consultants, and they look beyond the wording of any contract between the parties to the nature of the relationship. We can:
- Advise you as to the difference between a contract for services and a contract of services
- Draft a consultancy contract
- Help you to meet the qualifying criteria for a consultant with the relevant authorities.
