Due to the wide variety of ways in which coaches are employed and deployed it is impossible for us to provide guidance on individual sitatuions.
However, the following pages on the HMRC website offers advice on being employed or self employed:
HMRC run free Advice Workshops which can offer practical advice on the tax matters that will affect coaches: record-keeping, filling in and filing your tax return - and what to do if you take someone on.
For more information on these advice workshops please visit the HMRC website.
HMRC have also announced a campaign to investigate sports tutors and coaches, with particular focus on those providing private lessons. For more information on how this may effect you please visit the HMRC website.
Sports Coach UK have a range of useful documents giving guidance to people employed as a coach. These include:
Employment Status of Coaches - A Guide for Employers and Deployers of coaches
