Employed or self-employed - that is the question

HMRC have recently issued a factsheet to help you decide whether you are employed or self-employed for tax and National Insurance purposes. The leaflet covers issues such as:

  • Is your employment status right?
  • The special rules that apply to certain occupations and jobs 
  • Working through a Company or partnership 
  • Checking your employment status 
  • Employment Status Indicator (ESI) tool 
  • Your position if you have more than one job
  • Why employment status is important 
  • Your entitlement to benefits and employment rights

It gives links to other relevant information and provides helpline numbers.

The sheet can be found at
