Self-Employment

Club, Coach, Latest, Self-Employment / 27.03.2016

questioniconIt is common for a coach at a club to do two specific types of work - coaching for the club where the club pay the coach, and coaching for individual members where the member pays the coach directly. A coach providing individual tuition directly to members does NOT have any impact on whether a coach is truly self-employed for the work they do for a club where the club pays the coach directly - HMRC (tax authorities) would treat the two types of work as being completely separate.

thumbsupiconThere are still a significant number of clubs, coaches and representative associations who believe that a coach must be employed by a club if the club tells the coach where and when they must work, and if the coach has to work as part of a team. This is not correct - a self-employed coach CAN be told where and when they will coach, work as part of a team, be required to wear a uniform, etc., so long as the coach fulfils one of the two other criteria HMRC (tax authorities) impose on a self-employment relationship - substitution or financial risk.

questioniconWe are asked this question frequently and it is important to make sure receipts are correctly recorded and stored. Scanned receipts ARE accepted by HMRC for both self-employed persons and limited companies, contrary to the advice given by some high street accountants and also by the HMRC helpline when we rang them to see what advice they would give (moral of the story - don't rely on the HMRC helpline, it's rubbish!).
