Tax avoidance schemes

In anticipation of the changes some intermediaries may approach recruitment businesses with ‘solutions’ to the changes. Some will be legitimate, others won’t be.  HMRC have issued a number of Spotlights about schemes used to reduce temporary workers’/ contractors’ tax and NICs and which HMRC considers do not work. These include paying contractors via loan (now subject to the loan charge), annuity and loyalty points for advertising the contractor’s services on a jobs board. When engaging with any intermediary, members should fully understand the arrangements used to pay those temporary workers/ contractors. Please note that HMRC do not endorse any “solutions”, companies or assessment tools.
