Employment Status Indicator
The Employment Status Indicator
An interesting and useful tool, The Employment Status Indicator (ESI) tool on the HMRC website helps you to check the employment status of an individual or group of workers – as to whether they are employed or self-employed for tax, NI contributions (NICs) or for VAT purposes.
The tool is completely anonymous, so no personal details about the worker or user – engager as HMRC call it are requested. The ESI tool is essentially for anyone who takes on workers, such as employers and contractors – the engager.
If you think this might help, then visit the HMRC site here and read their page carefully before proceeding.
