What we want

  • A level playing field for employers and the self-employed.

What have we achieved?

  • Produced clear-cut guidance on the advantages and disadvantages of chair renting/treatment room renting and what salon owners can and can’t do to stay within the law.
Self-employed: 48% (76,000) of people working in hairdressing and barbering and 57% (48,000) of people working in beauty are self employed.

What are we doing?

  • Contributing to the government review of the ‘gig economy’ and modern working practices.
  • Encouraging the government to take a joined-up approach to tax, VAT, licences, illegal non-EU workers to stamp out exploitations and prevent rogue employers undercutting reputable businesses.
