The landmark Uber case came to a conclusion recently, with the courts ruling that Uber taxi drivers are employees, not self-employed contractors.

ICS Head of Compliance, Martin Hall, has commeneted on how this ruling will affect how ICS operates;

“There have been several changes recently within our industry and there are plenty more to come. Although the Uber ruling won’t impact upon the firm’s operations directly, it will certainly be interesting to see what wider changes might come about which the ruling contributes to. The government has some additional food for thought now on how our tax system operates as a whole; I wouldn’t be surprised to see further reforms in the future which could then impact upon the way in which we and our clients work.”

ICS provides accountancy, administration and payroll services to contractors, freelancers and small businesses across the UK from our head offices in Lancaster.
