The article focuses on the warning issued by logistics industry staff provider Driver Hire about new rules that could see agency drivers pay big sums in tax. The changes in the law, introduced on January 6, 2008, apply to managed service companies (MSC). Previously, drivers contracting through an MSC were able to claim they were self employed and benefit from the tax advantage of that status.
