    Exclamation End client demand for Contractor personal details

    Hi all.
    I'm contracting at a large UK based end client. The contract I have in place is between my limited company and an agency to provide services to this end client. The Agency has the direct relationship with the end client.
    The end client is now asking for my personal address details so they can submit to HMRC.
    In an email they state that "HMRC require us to submit data on contractors where we do not pay PAYE tax, this is to ensure that we are both submitting similar records of employment/engagement for given periods (in this case its 6th July to 5th October). We are legally mandated by HMRC to submit this data, and as this is a legal requirement it does not violate GDPR Rules."
    I'm not sure I agree, I believe that it is a GDPR breach for this personal data to be shared. Can anyone guide me on what responses I should be making?

    Many Thanks

    I'd also not want to submit this, and if it is a legal requirement, I'm surprised others haven't posted a similar story here.

    Is your PSC registered address the same as your home address? If not, I'd give that first.

    Of course, the risk is that you refuse and they terminate your engagement.

    It's to do with individual tax, not corporation, etc.
    And by telling you who they are sharing the data with, it's not a breach of GDPR.

    The reason others of us haven't posted about it is because these rules have been talked about for some time. Companies have to declare whether the people working for them are inside or outside IR35, they have to provide information on the individuals working for them, so that HMRC have a valid record.
