Revenue targetting dental, airline, and meter reading sectors.

Revenue are now targeting dental, airline and meter reading sectors to determine whether people are employees or self –employed.

In 2009, Revenue, in conjunction with the Department of Social and Family Affairs and NERA, commenced an investigation into employment status in the medical profession. Initially this concentrated on medical and pharmacy practices, with particular concentration on locums. The net result is that many arrangements which were traditionally treated as self-employment arrangements are now deemed to be employment arrangements. This has implications such as the application of employer PRSI, holiday entitlements, etc.

At this stage in the investigation, The Clare Revenue District has contacted all medical and pharmacy practices in Clare to ensure proper application of the PAYE system. The district is now carrying out similar inquiries in relation to the dental, airline and meter reading sectors.
