HMRC Employment Status Research
HMRC would like to understand the difficulties micro, small and medium-sized enterprises face when categorising the employment status of their staff.
We have been asked to carry out some research on behalf of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), looking at how small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) decide whether staff are categorised as either employees or self employed.
HMRC would like to find out how they can make it easier for SMEs to categorise their employees correctly.
HMRC will take this research and use it to introduce changes that will make this categorisation process clearer and easier for employers.
All interviews will be confidential and anonymous; it will not be possible for HMRC to identify any businesses or individuals who took part in the research.
