United Kingdom – Consultation on Offshore Intermediaries and Liability to NICs, Tax 

KPMG LLP in the United Kingdom reports that the U.K. tax authorities (HMRC), on May 30, 2013, released a consultation on the use of offshore intermediaries to stop companies using arrangements that remove their liability to pay U.K. Social Security (NIC) and tax. The consultation proposes to change the rules to widen HMRC’s powers to enforce payment of employers’ social security contributions and payroll tax withholdings (PAYE) where employees are working in the U.K., even if their legal employer is based outside the United Kingdom. The proposals could add significant costs to many companies around the world.
