HMRC questions associates’ employment status - NASDAL comment

HMRC questions associates employment status

Her Majesty`s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has written recently to a number of associates indicating that they are reviewing their individual employment status. The BDA is seeking details from those of its members who have received these letters and advising them to to contact their accountant before responding.

The BDA says it would be helpful for them to have a copy of the letter you have received and an indication of your practising arrangements (e.g. NHS/private, and whether for example you work in a prototype practice). “The information you provide will be used to help us build a picture of what is happening, and your personal information will not be used,” they say.

In a statement to GDPUK, NASDAL said: “The National Association of Specialist Dental Accountants and Lawyers (NASDAL) is aware that there have been a small sample of Associate dentists in the North West of England who have received a communication from HMRC in regard to their employment status. NASDAL has already liaised with HMRC and is working closely with the British Dental Association on this matter. We will provide further information as and when it becomes available and at the appropriate juncture.”

The BDA continued: “We are working with dental accountancy colleagues, will be monitoring developments closely and will offer further information and advice to members as and when there is more clarity around the scope of the HMRC process.”
