In short, at Marble Contracting, we remove the risk of using subcontractors and operating CIS payroll instead of PAYE.
The team at Marble Contracting know the law, and apply it correctly to make sure everybody in the supply chain is compliant and safe.
We tailor our services to fit how our clients operate to ensure that we fit in seamlessly, whilst still ensuring complete legal compliance.

We’ve used Marble Contracting for over a decade to handle our subcontractors. Overall, they’re extremely accommodating, and informative - experts in the field. Ultimately, we’ve never had to worry about the intricacies or burden of engaging subcontractors.
I was put in touch with Marble after receiving an enquiry from HMRC. After an initial meeting, they helped us navigate the process, and offered excellent advice. Since then, we’ve been working with them for many years, and plan to keep it that way.
Marble have been a great support to our business over the years. The service they provide is amazing! Professional, punctual, and great value. A huge asset for us.
We have used Marble since September 2021, and have always found the team very helpful and responsive. The team are always on hand to help and I feel I can go and ask as many times as I like and it is no trouble.

We understand this may not be deemed a top priority and then gets pushed down the long list of things to do.
Dealing with this issue now though, could prove to be a wise investment of a small amount of time. We can provide clear advice as to where you stand, whether there is any risk and more importantly different ways you could strengthen your position.
Status challenges can take several years to resolve, involve expensive legal battles, huge HMRC liabilities, sleepless nights, and more stress. Why not save yourself all that pain and get in touch.
It is great when a pro-active accountant knows that employment status is an area that needs addressing and we work closely with many accountants to achieve this.
The directors of Marble are the nominated IR35, status and CIS helpline experts for organisations such as Professional Fee Protection and Taxaction. This means that accountants regularly get put in contact with us when they have queries over these specialist areas.
The services we offer are completely different and complimentary to what your accountant will already be doing and we would be happy to meet them to discuss.
During a routine enquiry, HMRC will typically look at the employment status of anyone that is not on PAYE, whether that is 1 person or 500.
You may not think HMRC will have the desire to pursue a company over one subcontractor, but this happens regularly and can be seen in the graveyard of tax tribunal judgments against the taxpayer.
Only having a few subcontractors might even be music to HMRC’s ears because you could be seen as an easy target that is less likely to get advice and representation.
Working for other companies does NOT mean someone is self-employed. This is the biggest misunderstanding about employment status and it is dangerous to base your position on this.
If HMRC asked you to explain why working for other people made someone self-employed, could you back up this answer with any case law or legislation?
An employee can have multiple jobs, just like a self-employed person. Having different jobs rarely alters whether they are all PAYE or self-employed.
