Small businesses can gain a lot by using independent contractors.
Small businesses often want to classify their workers as independent contractors rather than employees for a number of reasons:
- No employment taxes
- No withholding
- Fewer benefits
- Less liability
But proper classification of workers as employees or independent contractors is critical, as misclassification may lead to government fines and penalties.
Simplicity Law can advise you on whether an independent contractor arrangement is right for your business, as well as draft your independent contractor agreement so that it complies with local laws.
