5 months ago

Once again the importance of control wins IR35 case in being in business on own account.

Television Presenter and Radio Broadcaster, Kaye Adams successfully appealed against HMRC regarding her self-employed status under the IR35 legislation while she was presenting BBC Radio “The Kaye Adams Programme” during the 2015/16 and 2016/17 tax years.

According to Judge Tony Beare, Ms Adam was in business on her account as her 20-year career as a freelancer and roles outside the BBC supports this.

Adams and the programme’s editor, Colin Paterson, demonstrated that Kaye held a significant degree of control provided through oral evidence as well as this was backed by the fact that Adams would draft the scripts for the programme, with Paterson adding: “Kaye calls the shots”.
