UK Employment Agencies Warned Of New Tax Rules

by Jason Gorringe, Tax-News.com, London

08 July 2015


Employment agencies have until August 5 to make sure they are complying with new HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) rules.

New legislation, introduced in April 2015, requires that businesses that supply two or more workers to a client without operating pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) must report payment details to HMRC on a quarterly basis.

Ruth Owen, Director General Personal Tax, said: "While the vast majority of employment intermediaries play by the rules, a minority try to avoid their legal obligation to pay the right Income Tax and National Insurance contributions. Some employment intermediaries have been helping people to claim they are self-employed when they are not. The new rules will help HMRC crack down on people trying to bend the rules."

People who supply workers can check HMRC guidance to see if the new rules apply and whether they need to send in a quarterly return. The information for the first quarter - covering April 6 to July 5, 2015 - needs to be submitted to HMRC by August 5, 2015, using HMRC's online services.
