Further sessions are planned on the Construction Industry Scheme, setting up a limited company, paying employees, calculating national insurance for directors, and statutory sick pay, but HMRC says no firm dates have been set because of the harsh weather. Places must be booked in advance.
HMRC has set up its own network of trained advice teams who run free workshops and presentations in many different locations and on many topics. Their aim is to make anything that is tax-related as hassle-free as possible, the department said.
"HMRC understands how time-consuming running your own business can be and that paperwork may not always be a top priority," a spokesman added. "That's why the advice teams are there to give practical assistance in areas where it is most needed, so that you understand what needs to be done and will have the confidence and knowledge to get it right the first time."
