Why engage with Marquee Contracting?


We protect you, it’s that simple.

Due to self-employed status and legislation changes (ITEPA S44 2014) – if you engage directly with a sub-contractor, HMRC could deem this as an Employee/Employer relationship and chase you for unpaid Tax and National Insurance.

To put this into perspective, just a handful of sub-contractors earning £600 a week for a year could set you back:

  • £62 Employers NI per person, £16,120 for the year
  • Penalties, fines and Interest in excess of £4,100
  • Reclassification of your entire workforce
  • You could lose your Gross status and be fined £3,000 per month, £36,000 per year, for each incorrect CIS statement declaration


On top of this, HMRC could also add interest and penalities onto the bill which could run into hundres of thousands of pounds. If one of your sub-contractors believes they should be entitled to employment rights and statutory payments, you could find yourself in the middle of a complex employment tribunal. These costs alone can run into thousands of pounds.

With Marquee Contracting, not only are these risks removed, so is the hassle of running CIS Payroll, HMRC submissions and keeping abreast of ever changing legislation. Engaging with Marquee Contracting leaves you to grow your business without the burden and risk. legislation changes and hefty fines.

The switch to Marquee has been streamlined and is far easier than our previous provider. They are always happy to accommodate urgent requests. Nothing is too much trouble and they have a very professional approach and look forward to our ongoing working relationship with them for many years to come. I would highly recommend their services to any business.

Accounts Manager, Construction Company

We have been working closely with Marquee Contracting since September 2014 and they provide an easy and accurate way of processing sub contractors’ payments. I would recommend their services to anyone who runs or has to deal with regular sub-contractor payments. The experience of using Marquee is also made nicer by the lovely ladies who I am in constant contact with.

Accounts, Construction Company

I have found Marquee to be extremely efficient, very friendly and a pleasure to work with. They are always available by phone and reply to emails in a timely manner. My contractors speak highly of Marquee and as an agency, a happy contractor is what I want.

Recruitment Manager, Recruitment Agency

We have been using Marquee for two years and I can honestly state that the service provided by the team is second to none. As an agency our temp staff varies from week to week, both in numbers and hours worked. Marquee take this all in their stride and I could not imagine a more efficient team to work with.
