Government delays crackdown on tax in construction

Focus on 'false self employment' postponed until New Year

Plans for a clampdown on tax in the construction industry have been postponed
until the New Year.

According to the industry magazine
Construction
News
the focus on what the taxman regards as “false self-employment” will
continue after the holidays when responses to current consultation are also
expected to be published.

HMRC believes many people working in construction are in effect “employees”
but adopt self employed status to avoid tax and national insurance
contributions.
