Hudson Contract’s unique legal standing means we have case law on our side. That is why we are the only company in the country able to offer clients a genuine guarantee.
We go to considerable lengths to ensure all freelance builders are on the correct Hudson contract. Our justification of status extends through four separate auditing processes. To meet the latest tax laws we have worked in-depth with one of the 'Big Four' auditing firms to ensure our procedures are watertight and meet all HMRC requirements.
As an additional layer of legal surety we consulted with three members of the Bar Council to ensure compliance and we continue to work with the Government on self-employment – and false self-employment – issues and have contributed to a Labour Party review. From 2012 – 2013, we sat on the Business Challenge Panel considering changes to employment policies at the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills.
Looking to the future, we will take every measure possible to ensure the service to our clients operates, as it always has, with full compliance of tax laws.
No-one can prevent HMRC from inspecting your records and anyone who claims to be able to prevent status inspections should be given a wide berth. What Hudson Contract does is to eliminate the fear of the inspection and ensure it has no financial consequences for you or your business.
Here’s what HMRC said to one of our clients after a recent inspection:
“A large number of workers are provided through Hudson Contract. The information you have provided confirms the transfer and continuing engagement of these workers is in line with Hudson Contract’s usual practices. There is therefore no employment status for me to consider.”
We have countless examples and client testimonials to prove that with Hudson Contract, you get what you have paid for: a secure self-employment solution that is guaranteed.
No. Hudson Contract guarantees you fully against the financial consequences if our contract should ever fail an HMRC investigation. It has never failed, but if it should, we would pay for the legal team to argue the case and pay the fine if we were to lose.
If you currently use another provider or a contract provided by a third party, be sure to ask them this same question, and get them to confirm the answer in writing.
