We were contacted by a Scaffolding Contractor after HMRC had issued assessment claiming tax and NIC's totalling over £70,000 excluding interest and penalties in relation to two subcontractors the Inland Revenue had ruled to be employees.
We reviewed all of the facts and interviewed the Subcontractors and the Directors of the Company (something the HMRC had not done).
Despite the late stage at which we became involved we were successful in demonstrating that the individuals were genuinely self employed reducing the demand to nil.
