Employment Relationship Guidelines and Approval Process for Engagements

HMRC has tightened its approach of the acceptability of employing individuals on a self-employed basis rather than as employees, as NI contributions are paid on behalf of employees but not on behalf of suppliers. Policy and process documentation can be found on Personnel web-page under Payroll . If you need any further information or guidance please contact Claudia McLean:
