BBC PROGRAMME CONDEMNS USE OF UMBRELLA COMPANIES TO AVOID TAX AND NI FOR NHS WORKERS

On 11 June, Accounting Web reported that a BBC Radio 4 programme exposing a tax and National Insurance fiddle involving workers being “employed” via umbrella companies, and which has targeted workers joining or re-joining the NHS.  It is pointed out that, when HMRC catches up with the workers involved, it is they who will be targeted and forced to pay the missing tax/NI, with the promoters of the schemes having vanished or, if still in existence, refusing any compensation.
