Self-Employed or not Self-Employed, that is the question … for the Traffic Commissioners, HMRC and the Employment Tribunal

Current HMRC guidance suggests that it will be ‘very rare’ that a commercial vehicle driver will be genuinely self-employed (regardless of the label given to the relationship) and Traffic Commissioners now scrutinise the arrangements operators have in place for engaging their drivers. So called ‘self-employed’ drivers are a major concern for HMRC and the Traffic Commissioners and can result in serious tax consequences as well as findings of loss of good repute.

Join us for our eTraining on the arrangements for engaging your drivers, the changes to the off-payroll working rules, which came into effect from 6 April 2021, and the potential implications for you, your business and your Operator’s Licence of getting it wrong.

The training covers:

HMRC’s position
The employment position – self-employed vs. worker vs. employee
IR35
good repute and the decision of the Upper Tribunal in the Bridgestep case
the approach of the Traffic Commissioners
the risks for your Operator’s Licence
the other consequences of getting it wrong
steps you should now take
