Do you know the actual tax status of your workers?

Many sport and recreation organisations pay coaches, groundsmen, cleaners, bar staff, etc. Whether such workers are self-employed, employed or casual will depend on how the organisation and the worker actually work together, so getting this right can ensure that you don’t end up with a large tax bill if you are wrong about their status.

In employment law, a person’s employment status helps determine their rights and their employer’s responsibilities. The following collection of links have been collated to help employers decide the employment status of a worker.

Remember, if you need any further advice, you can always pick up the phone and call our taxation specialist on the WSA Members Helpline.
