The new travel and subsistence (T&S) legislation came into force on 6th April 2016. Agency contractors have experienced yet another change to the way in which they are remunerated.

HMRC guidance states that anyone who is under, or has the right of Supervision, Direction or Control (SDC) as to the manner in which the worker provides their services, will no longer be able to claim tax relief on their travel (usually mileage) or subsistence (usually a daily food allowance) expenses. HMRC have indicated that they intend SDC to apply to everyone that works via an employment intermediary, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise. In essence, individuals working via agencies and being paid via employment intermediaries are being treated more like 'employees' by the taxman, despite perhaps personally identifying more with the self-employed in terms of the flexibility, variety and security of their work.

The Construction industry is however a robust market, and Construction workers are a resilient bunch so we will find a compliant and effective route through these changes, something the Government no doubt fully expects to happen. Ultimately, in a market experiencing a skills-shortage, the end client and main contractor will foot the majority of the additional cost where individual workers require an uplift in pay to mitigate their 'T&S losses'.

Hundreds of articles and blogs have been written on the subject recently. To help you 'see through the fog' please read below and/or call us on 08450-132303.
