HMRC employer compliance reviews

HMRC conduct employer compliance reviews to ensure that all employers and contractors are correctly meeting their Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), National Insurance (NI) and tax requirements in relation to their business’ employees. An employer found to be in breach of the legal obligations in these areas can face serious consequences.

How healthy is your payroll?

When HMRC carries out their next employer compliance visit, is your business at risk of falling foul? If you haven’t had a visit from HMRC in over three years, then you can expect one soon!
