working on cruise ship

Dave

Previously client working under PAYE onboard liner as a "performer"
Turns up last week advising that for 08/09 she was self employed.
Contract seen with London agent making her a "sub contractor"
Paid by the agent in Sterling, board and food etc whist on liner provded,
as it travel to and from liner.
As FEE is not appropriate, then I am right in thinking it is simply a case
of claiminmg any additional expemces incurred to undertake her role on
board.

Many thanks

I'll be interested in comments on this, too - having had almost identical
circumstances crop up last week.

It was HMRC who declared it was self-employment - which surprised me,
although I've not had cruise ship clients before.

Re. your question, I agree re. FEE, so (presumably, but not guaranteed) a
matter only of "additional expenses" (taking care re "Wholly & Exclusively",
"dual purpose" and possible PIE (UK or Overseas rates ?!!) ).

Is it necessary to bring value of travel, subsistence and accommodation into
the sums?

Hi Martin
Thank you for the reply.
I have seen my clients contract and the "agent" declared she was a self
employed , in fact a subcontractor.
I am in the same position as you, my only "entertainer" client. Not a
problem in the past when she was on PAYE, but a little late to "dump" this
on me at this stage.
If I can get the answer re "Is it necessary to bring value of travel,
subsistence and accommodation into " I will of course post it, but hoping
someone with more experince in this field will know.

regards

Dave
