Employee or Independent Contractor? - New Online Tax Risk Assessment Tool Unveiled 

news & knowledge 

June 2016

The McMillan Tax Group has released a free online tax risk assessment module that simulates the inquiries posed by the Canada Revenue Agency (the "CRA") when the CRA assesses whether a worker is serving as an employee or an independent contractor.

The risk assessment module can be accessed on the McMillan website at mcmillan.ca/Tax_Assessment_Tool. Upon completion of the module, users are immediately provided with a tax risk assessment rating, which indicates the relative risk that that the CRA may characterize a particular working arrangement as an employment relationship.
