Basic principles: the deemed payment: introduction
Where the intermediaries legislation applies, an intermediary is treated as making a payment to the worker chargeable to tax as employment income and treated as earnings for Class 1 NICs purposes, known as a deemed payment.
This part of the guidance provides detailed guidance on how to:
- calculate the deemed employment payment for engagements within Chapter 8 ITEPA 2003
- account for the deemed payment
- work out the taxable profits of the intermediary.
A step by step guide to help you work out the deemed payment is provided at ESM8140 onwards.
