Construction workers to be targeted


Labour has announced that should they get back into government, they will be looking very closely at those working in the construction industry.

They will of course be focussing on IR35 (if you trade through a company) and the never ending employment V self-employment status.

If you feel your tax position is contentious, we would recommend the following:-

1. Have your contract with your customers reviewed. If you do not have one, you will need to obtain one. This is the first document that is likely to be inspected.

2. It is highly recommended that you appoint your accountant/agent to represent you. This will of course generate an additional cost to you. If you are unable to pay this additional fee, you should consider taking out the ‘Tax Investigation Service’.

3. Should your IR35 tax position be altered by HMRC, this is likely to generate additional tax liabilities, penalties and interest charges. If you cannot pay these, it is worth considering taking out ‘IR35 Tax Loss Insurance’
