Useful information from HMRC


Employed or self-employed

HMRC has put together several resources to offer practical and easy to follow guidance to explain Employment Status in detail and help people to decide if they are employed or self-employed. Their Employment Status will affect their Employment rights, the tax they pay and whether they are eligible to claim certain benefits and state pension etc.

For more information, please refer to the following YouTube video.
