Right, at the beginning of the year I started a new job, but instead of being employed by the company, I'm paid as a private contractor, and I have to sort out payment of my own tax and insurance. The company has around 80 people working for them in this manner.
Now, I've only just got to a point where I'm about to declare myself self employed, and part of the process is telling the tax people the name of the company I'm contracting for. I found out today that a lot of the people I work with don't bother paying their tax and insurance, and quite a few of them are scamming it a little, eg. claiming benefit on the side, or working while receiving sick pay from another company. A lot of them are very sound guys, and I don't want them to get in shit over me actually paying my tax and insurance.
What I want to know is, how likely is it that the taxman is going to get in touch with the company I'm working for, and how likely is it that they'll want to know if the company is paying more than just me as private contracters?
