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 consequences as well as the loss of good repute.

Join us on 20 October when James Backhouse, Laura Hadzik and James Lomax will deliver 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
