Determining whether someone is employed or self-employed can be difficult, and reaching the wrong decision may be hugely expensive.

David Kirk guides the reader through the maze of apparently contradictory case law. He divides the tests into the three groups suggested by the leading judgment, laying out the courts’ authorities in order of importance, so that the reader can easily see where any particular ruling fits in to the scheme of things.

This thorough book also embraces the topics of officers, agency workers, personal services companies and special occupations.

"The best tax books are both an authoritative guide to the whole field and a vehicle for clear, even provocative, points of view – and this has both attributes." - from the foreword to the fourth edition, by Jonathan Peacock QC, Lincoln's Inn

David Kirk MA (Oxon), FCA, CTA runs his own charted accountancy practice and sits on the Small Business Tax Committee of the ICAEW. Read more here.
