Employment law and the tax implications: Is your business ready to take on employees?

A free MADE fringe event with business experts Hart Shaw and Ironmonger Curtis.

Wednesday 24th September 2014

Are you employing people? Do you engage people on a self-employed basis? Are you self-employed but generally do work for a single or a small number of clients or customers? Are you sure about yours and your contractors’ tax status? Will HMRC regard them or you as employees? If so what are the consequences?

Problems often arise in this complicated area of tax and employment law and getting it wrong can have costly consequences. A person’s status can be different depending on whether it is considered from an employment law or tax point of view.

Hart Shaw Chartered Accountants and Ironmonger Curtis Solicitors joined forces at MADE 2014 to deliver a seminar aimed at entrepreneurs, new business start-ups and early growth stage businesses highlighting the key areas a business needs to be aware of and the risks involved when engaging people in a business.

  • Employment V Self Employment
  • Employer requirements
  • Directors service agreements
  • Payroll & RTI
  • Auto Enrolment
  • Benefits in kind
  • Termination payments

Delivered by Steve Vickers, Tax Partner from Hart Shaw and Toby Pochron & Jon Curtis, Employment Law Solicitors from Ironmonger Curtis the seminar provided a crucial insight into the benefits and risks of being an employer.
