Managed Service Company (MSC) legislation has come to the fore in recent months following news that HMRC sent tax bills to numerous self-employed contractors after accusing their accountant of breaching MSC rules.  It’s quite likely that you’ve never heard of MSC legislation, even if you’re a seasoned contractor, so what on earth is it all about?  We spoke to contracting expert Seb Maley, CEO of Qdos to find out:

  • What actually is MSC legislation?
  • Why does it matter if an accountant controls financial affairs?
