Employment Status

Employment status is not as simple as it may first appear. Determining wrongly whether someone is employed or self employed can be a very expensive tax mistake.

Frequently there is no clear-cut answer for determining employment status. The fundamental factors to consider:

  • Control – Who Has The Final Say In How The Business Is Run?
  • Integration – Who Is Providing The Equipment And A Management Role
  • Mutuality Of Obligation – When Is Work Offered, And Can Work Be Turned Down?
  • Economic Reality – Who Is Responsible For Meeting Losses And Profits?
