PAYE and National Insurance deductions, together with declaring benefits in kind, increases the administrative burden. Do you have employees? Whether an individual is considered an employee or not, depends on the terms on which he/she works. The question of whether an individual is employed or self-employed is very important for the business ‘employing’ him/her, as that business has to comply with the reporting requirements. In certain areas HMRC has

placed emphasis on reclassifying individuals claiming to be self- employed. If you have treated someone as self-employed and subsequently, after a routine visit from HMRC, it is clear that they are employees, then the tax and NIC which should have been paid will be the responsibility of the employer. Therefore, it is important to ensure when using the services of self-employed people, they are in fact self- employed. If doubt exists as to the status of an individual, the situation can be clarified with HMRC. Your adviser should also have experience in these matters: The operation of a PAYE

HALESWORTH Market Place becomes quite magical at this time of the year bedecked with twinkling lights and Christmas trees. Dating back to medieval times the Market Place is steeped in history and for hundreds of years was the place where local producers would come to sell their wares. The original charter for the market was granted in the 1220s and a regular market is still held every Wednesday. The traditional Christmas Market taking place on Saturday 10th December will be a blast from the past with local producers again gathering in the Market Place to sell their produce between 9.30am – 4.30pm. Selling at the market will be

The Two Magpies Bakery from Southwold, Truly Traceable Venison & Game Pies, Fen Farm Dairy, The Norfolk Truffle Company, Valley Farm Vineyards, Chloe’s Cakes, Peachey’s Preserves, Totham Bangers, Season’s Bounty, Opa Hays Brewery, D.J. Wines, East Norfolk Trading Company, My Secret Kitchen. Many of the

stalls will have samples on offer, enabling people to try before they buy. Street food will be provided by Friends Farm BBQ, The Flying Chef and Paddy & Scotts. The Vintage Tool Company,

Acorn Forge aka James with his amazing creations, Driftwood Birds and The Silent Menagerie will also be selling their goods at the market. Local traders Melons will

be selling Christmas trees and wreaths, The Sweet Cafe will have lots of festive treats on offer and The Boarding House will be selling mulled wine and other goodies prepared by Tyler and his crew. To further add to the festive atmosphere members of the St. Mary’s Church Choir together with members of the Festival Singers will be singing carols outside The Wine Shop during the morning and at 3pm the amazing Old Glory Molly Dancers and Musicians will be performing outside Blackdog Antiques as part of their ‘No Respect’ tour.
