In July the government commissioned the OTS in July to examine the dividing line between employment and self-employment and “whether it is drawn in the right place and in the right way”.
The Office of Tax Simplification is now seeking views on where the complexities lie in determining someone’s employment status for tax purposes. As such it has published a questionnaire, the deadline for which is 31 December 2014.
The OTS aims to publish its report at the end of February 2015, in time for Budget 2015.
It would be nice to think that this exercise will help simplify our massively complex tax system. However, I won't be holding my breath.
Tax does have to be taxing.
