HMRC claims victory in another IR35 dispute to sting Nationwide contractor for nearly £75k in back taxes


Re: Rigged definition of an employee

Its helpful when HMRC have basically rigged the definition of an employee to be be "anyone we think should have paid tax at an employees rate".


What HMRC have done is rigged the rules to say anybody who is pretending to be a contractor yet is for all intents and purposes is an employee for all intents and purposes for tax evasion purposes is an employee and should pay tax like an employee.

It's not hard to guess why people are triggered though, given it doesn't apply to legitimate contractors..
