EXPIRED HMRC’s Employment Status Tool – Customising Your Record

Please see below for some updated guidance on completing HMRC’s Checking Employment Status for Tax tool.

Once you’ve gone through the tool, HMRC give you an outcome. At the bottom of this page is a grey box which you must tick in order to get a PDF record of the result. You will then be asked to customise the record.

We often find there’s some confusion about what needs to go in these four boxes so please see below as a reference:

Name of the person that completed this check: your name

End client’s name: the name of your school

Engagement job title: the worker’s job title

Reference: worker’s name


If you have any questions about this or about Employment Status/IR35, please email

Thank you.
