Contract for Self Employed Staff

Due to the nature of the work, sometimes a self-employed arrangement is more suitable for both parties who want to work together, for example, the work may be infrequent or irregular. Under this arrangement, the worker invoices you and they are responsible for paying their own tax and national insurance. You need to be careful not to take on someone as self-employed if they are not truly self-employed.

When you purchase this service, I will draft a self-employed contract for you for hiring self-employed workers i.e. not on your payroll.

Assumptions this is based upon:

  • The client has no criminal record and passes all KYC and AML checks (provide proof of address and proof of identity to the lawyer’s request).
  • Governing law of England & Wales only.
  • The client has made themselves aware and comfortable with their selection of this service and the client is aware that by purchasing this service they are not advised on whether or not this product is suitable for a particular use, but rather they know that for themselves.
