unstar this property answer text <p>Falling within the off-payroll tax rules does not change an individual’s status for employment rights, as there is no direct link between employment taxes and these rights. In response to the Matthew Taylor review of Employment Practices in the Modern Economy, the Government will consult on the rules that determine an individual’s employment status for both employment rights and tax.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)’s Check Employment Status for Tax (CEST) service has been tested for accuracy against known case law and settled cases. It provides an answer for 85 percent of uses, and HMRC will stand by the result given unless a compliance check finds the information provided isn’t accurate.</p><p> </p><p>Feedback from customers shows the CEST service is helping to ensure that, for most situations, decisions on whether a worker is in scope of the intermediaries legislation (known as IR35) are simple and quick. HMRC will continue to work with customers to enhance the service, and holds tax guidance on employment status under review.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government welcomes the contribution that international students make to the UK economy. We recognise that international students enhance our educational institutions both financially and culturally; enrich the experience of domestic students; and become important ambassadors for the United Kingdom in later life. The Government has recently commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee to undertake a study into the costs and benefits of international students.</p><p>There is no limit on the number of international students who can come to the UK and there are no plans to change this. So long as students are compliant with immigration rules they should make a very limited contribution to net migration numbers.</p><p>The independent Office for National Statistics is responsible for the production of the net migration statistics. In line with the internationally agreed UN definition, these statistics define a migrant as someone changing their normal place of residence for more than a year. Students are therefore included in the same way as other migrants.</p>
