I don't know whether this is an appropriate forum for this topic. Apologies if not. Prompted by http://www.allsaints...ectorofmusicjob I am wondering about two questions of employment law. One is the old chestnut of self-employed status. It has been mentioned on this board and elsewhere that whatever an organist's tax status is for the rest of his employment any regular contracted position as a church organist is understood under English law and HMRC to be employed rather than self-employed, in other words the organist should be on the church pay-roll and NI Class 1 deductions should be made and PAYE Tax deducted according to tax-code. The second is a VAT question. Is it legal to say that a fee will be treated as inclusive of VAT where the person carrying out the work is registered for VAT but will be paid in full to someone who isn't registered?
