The smartphone is the sun and everything else orbits it…

From Ben Evans’ blog “Content isn’t King”

….  the device is the phone and the network is the internet. The smartphone is the sun and everything else orbits it. Internet advertising will be bigger than TV advertising this year, and Apple’s revenue is larger than the entire global pay TV industry. This is also why tech companies are even thinking about commissioning their own premium shows today – they are now so big that the budgets involved in buying or creating TV look a lot less daunting than they once did. A recurring story in the past was for a leading tech company to go to Hollywood, announce its intention to buy lots of stuff, and then turn pale at the first rate card it was shown and say “wow – that’s really expensive!”. They have the money now, not from conquering TV but from creating something bigger.

How Kolbe Can Help Your Work Relationship With a Spouse

I regularly work with couples who are both involved in the business. Often they have problems seeing problems the same way and this can put a strain on their relationship. I have found that both partners understanding their Kolbe A results can not only improve the way that they work together but can also have a beneficial effect on  their life outside the business.

What’s your Kolbe? Mine is 6.3.8.3.

Here’s a brief video from Kolbe Corp.

“No is a powerful word. To me, it’s the single most powerful word in the English language.

Said clearly, strongly and with enough frequency and force, it can alter the course of history.”

Dental associates; workers or self-employed? The tide is turning…. from JFH lw

Laura Pearce, Senior solicitor at JFH law has written a an informative blog post on the changing position of associates in the eyes of HMRC.

Since the Central London employment tribunal handed down its decision in the Uber case on 28th October 2016, the courts have been awash with claimants seeking to gain worker status. Pimlico Plumbers and CitySprint have both had judgments against them, and claims against Deliveroo, Amazon Logistics and Hermes are all in the pipe line. 

But how is this relevant to the dental profession?

Whilst associates enjoy self-employed status for tax purposes, this is an arrangement with HMRC; not the legal system. Since the Uber case it is clear the courts are cracking down on false self-employment and so dental practices need to be live to this issue.

Failing to identify a person’s status from the outset will be a costly mistake to make.

Here we take a look at the recent judgments in the Pimlico Plumbers and CitySprint cases and explain what impact they have on worker status in the dental profession.

To make sure you don’t wind up before the courts read on here.
