Classing a subbie as an employee

Recommended Posts

Morning All,

 

i am a small, one man band with no direct employees, but a list of independent subbies that I regularly use. They are covered under my employee insurance Yadar yadar yadar......

 

when filling out forms for work, and they ask for the amount of employees that I have, should I list 0, or can I list the number of regular subbies? As far as the work goes, we regularly go out as a 2 or 3 man team so seems silly (in my head) to potentially under sell and limit myself if I have to say it is just little old me on my own.

 

thanks

A subby is not an employee. If they were, they would not be sub contractors. In the event that a subby's status was challenged by HMRC, a document floating around that described them as an employee could lead to a few problems.

 

If the form asks for the number of employees, rather than tell a direct lie answer along the the lines of  "the Deezeeboy team comprises ......"
