Contractors to labour hire firms 29 Nov 2016

IF you contract to a firm hiring labour, from 1 April 2017, the withholding tax deducted from your income will be at the rate of 20%. This will mess up your provisional tax payments from 28 August 2017 and the next two payments. Even if you are trading as a company, you will still have withholding tax deductions from income. You will be allowed to choose your own rate so long as it's not less than 10% – see article on page 2 in this newsletter entitled “Some contractors to choose their own tax rate”.
