Tax and Insurance Overview for Locum workers
For anyone wishing to work as a locum, it is important that you work within the guidelines set out by the Inland Revenue concerning employment Vs self-employment (commonly referred to as IR35). We recommend to everyone that you visit the Inland Revenue site for further information, or take professional accountancy/tax advice before commencing locum work. You will also need to bear in the mind the preferences of your client practices, many of whom will no longer engage locums on a self employed basis for example.
Alternativelyif you wish, we have a selection of contacts that we can provide you with, covering a range of locum services . Whilst considering your preferences and the context of your work, it’s helpful to know what your options are in order to make an informed decision on what will work best for you, whether that is self employment, running a Ltd Company or utilising the services of an umbrella service.
