SELF EMPLOYMENT EXPLAINED

WHAT SELF EMPLOYMENT MEANS

Working for oneself as a freelance or the owner of a business rather than for an employer.

You’re probably self-employed if you:

  • Run your business for yourself and take responsibility for its success or failure
  • Have several customers at the same time
  • Can decide how, where and when you do your work
  • Can hire other people at your own expense to help you or to do the work for you
  • Provide the main items of equipment to do your work
  • Are responsible for finishing any unsatisfactory work in your own time
  • Charge an agreed fixed price for your work
  • Sell goods or services to make a profit
... WHAT IF WE'VE BEEN TOLD THE WAY WE ARE DOING THINGS IS FINE?

If you are using Self-Employed people direct you should be:

  • Undertaking a Compliance check on every person prior to their start
  • You must check their Right to Work
  • You must verify their Self-Employed Status with the HMRC
  • They should be working on a price
  • They should provide you with Public & Employers Insurance at the required financial levels prior to starting on site e.g. £10m/£10m/£5m

SELF EMPLOYED PAYROLL

If you are registered self-employed, already running a sole trader business, or considering it, Genius can help. We work with a number of clients who still rely on highly skilled and qualified self-employed workers who are left to decide how, when and if to approach a job.

IF YOU ENGAGE WITH GENIUS AS A SELF-EMPLOYED SUBCONTRACTOR, THE SUPPLY CHAIN GENERALLY LOOKS LIKE THIS:

Due to a change in the law if you are subject to any supervision, direction or control whilst on assignment (or even have a contractual right to supervision, direction and control) then self-employment is not an option.
