Sole Trader Subcontractor Agreements
Main contractors, whether by default or by necessity, will sometimes need
to employ the services of subcontractors.
These Sole Trader Subcontractor Agreements will give main contractors
considerable flexibility in rendering their services, allowing for an
overall increase in working capacity and, in many cases, in specialist
knowledge or skills. Especially relevant in the construction industry, but
also valuable in many other sectors, including IT services, Sole Trader
Subcontractor Agreements allow contractors to take on additional
self-employed workers on a short (or fixed) term basis.
These forms of agreement are designed to be used where the subcontractor is
to be an individual, but there are also
Company Subcontractor Agreements
that are designed to be used where the subcontractor is to be a company.
A key consideration to bear in mind is the status of the individual who is
to work as a subcontractor and any workers engaged by that subcontractor.
Each of the forms in this subfolder aims to minimize the risk that HMRC
will regard the individual subcontractor as an employee of the main
contractor rather than a self-employed sole trader.
The application of any of these templates cannot actually remove that risk. Therefore
professional advice should be sought. The advice will need to consider the
content of the form to be used together with all of the circumstances and
arrangements relating to the work, the client, the main contractor, the
individual subcontractor, and any person engaged by the subcontractor.
A further key consideration is that the agreement between the main
contractor and their own client must permit subcontracting.
