If you're a contractor getting schedular payments, you can:
- use the standard schedular payment tax rate for your activity
- apply for a tailored tax rate
- choose your own tax rate
- apply for an exemption from schedular tax.
You'll need to declare your tax rate to your payer. If you get an exemption, you'll need to show them your certificate of exemption.
