This webinar is aimed at everyone advising companies, large and small,  on employment status matters and looks at the implications of the planned extension.  In the course of this, we will look at the experience in the public sector, along the advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches to engaging contractors for both the PSC owner and the client. 

We will also consider  the tests likely to be applied by HMRC in determining whether a contractor is in  'disguised employment', and the primary recommendations for avoiding such a conclusion.
