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

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
