All IT WORKS materials have been prepared to comply with the law but your strict attention is specifically drawn to the following.
5 I. TRADING REGULATIONS a. Basic principles As an IT WORKS associate promoting IT WORKS products and services in the UK, you operate in your own name and on your own behalf as a self-employed independent contractor. The independent nature of your business operations remains the same irrespective of whether you additionally perform the very important functions of enrolling new Associates i.e. recruiting, training and supporting other IT WORKS associates. b. Trading Schemes Regulations In the UK, the IT WORKS opportunity has been designed to comply with the provisions of the Fair Trading Act 1973 (as amended) and the Trading Schemes Regulations These principally regulate the format and terms of our agreement with you, the IT WORKS associate, the compensation plan and advertising and training. c. Advertising i. General Under the regulations a promoter i.e. IT WORKS, or a participant i.e. IT WORKS Associate, in a trading scheme must NOT issue, circulate of distribute any advertisement which contains information likely to lead directly or indirectly to persons becoming participants in a trading scheme by an y means, unless that advertisement contains both the Associate s name and address and that of IT WORKS as the promoter of the opportunity and a description of the goods or services being promoted. The following statutory warning must also be included: 1. It is illegal for a promoter or a participant in a trading scheme to persuade anyone to make a payment by promising benefits from getting others to join the scheme. 2. Do not be misled by claims that high earnings are easily achieved. The warning must be easily legible or audible, must not appear at the beginning or the end of the advertisement and must be afforded no less prominence than that given to any other information in the advertisement apart from the heading. If the advertisement contains any information as to the sources of income for Associates, the statutory warning must appear with such information and be given no less prominence than such information. These rules do not apply to any advertisement which forms a part of a newspaper or magazine. All IT WORKS official marketing material complies with the regulations. You must ensure that if you produce any material yourself to promote your IT WORKS business that it complies both with the Company s advertising guidelines contained in the Policies and Procedures and with the requirements of the Regulations set out above. ii. Earnings Claims If you make any earnings claims with your promotion of the IT WORKS business opportunity, in addition to complying with the terms of your associate agreement and the Regulations, you must also ensure that you do not breach the
6 British Code of Advertising, Sales Promotion and Direct Marketing. The code applies to advertisements in nonbroadcast electronic media, i.e. to newspapers, magazines, flyers, brochures but not to the internet, TV or radio advertising. The code provides that advertisements for income opportunities should not mislead as to the support available or the likely rewards for the investment and work required, nor should they be presented in such a way as to be likely to be confused with an offer of paid employment. Advertisements should contain the name and contact details of the advertiser and where possible a description of the work involved, the extent of the investor s commitments and the financial investment. Earnings figures should not be exaggerated and when claims as to earnings attainable are made the advertiser should have available evidence that such earnings are currently obtained by existing associates. Copies of the code can be obtained free of charge from the Advertising Standards Authority from their website at II. TAXATION a. Income Tax If you are trading as an Individual, are an associate, and are resident in the UK, then you will be taxed in the UK as a selfemployed individual on your worldwide income. As a self-employed associate, it is your responsibility to file the appropriate tax returns and to make all payments of tax due in connection with your IT WORKS business. You must register with the Inland Revenue as self-employed as soon as you register as an IT WORKS associate. You can obtain the form to do so, which is contained in the guidance booklet SE1, available from your local Revenue & Customs office or from the Revenue & Customs website at entitled Are you thinking of working for yourself? or by calling the Helpline for the newly self emplyed on If you do not register within the first three months you can be liable to a fine of 100 GBP (Pounds Sterling). IT WORKS recommends that you seek the advise of a suitably qualified accountant or tax advisor. b. Value Added Tax The standard VAT rate is 17.5%. As a self employed associate it is your responsibility to register for VAT once your turnover exceeds the threshold for compulsory registration (currently 61,000 GBP) in the preceding twelve months. If you are VAT registered then the company will provide you with a commission statement in your backoffice and you will need to provide the company with a VAT invoice each month for the VAT on your commission to be paid, (Alternately IT WORKS may create a self billing statement on your behalf to pay the VAT on your commissions.) IF at any time while you are an associate of IT WORKS, you register or deregister for VAT, it is essential that you advise the company as soon as possible. If you are VAT registered or become VAT registered the company will require a copy of your VAT registration certificate and confirmation of your status on renewal each year thereafter.
7 Information on VAT registration is available from the Revenue & Customers website at or you can call the National Advice Service on III. PARTNERSHIPS/COMPANIES IT WORKS accepts as associates individuals, partnerships, and limited companies. If you plan to operate your IT WORKS business as a partnership, even if your proposed partner is your spouse, you need to consider carefully the business relationship between you and your partner and we strongly advise you to have a written partnership agreement and/or to take professional advice in this respect. IV. SOCIAL SECURITY CONTRIBUTIONS All self employed persons in the UK must register for and pay class 2 National Insurance Contributions which is a fixed weekly amount and class 4 which is a percentage of your taxable profits. You can pay these by direct debit monthly and can register for them and find out current amounts when you register yourself as a self employed person with Revenue & Customs. Exemptions for small earnings may be available. Contact Revenue and Customs for questions or call the Self Employment Contact Centre. V. DATA PROTECTION IT WORKS has a policy on how it processes and treats your personal data and that of all IT WORKS associates. IF you maintain a database of your contacts and/or customers including personal information such as addresses and telephone numbers, then you should check carefully that you are complying with the applicable legislation in how you deal with this information. You can obtain useful guidance from the Information Commissioners office which can be contacted on telephone number or at There can be fines and uncosts imposed by Magistrate Courts and Higher Courts for failure to notify processing activities. VI. SPAM Although we recognise that is a powerful communication tool, new rules came into force in the UK in December 2003 which requires the following: 1). You cannot transmit, nor instigate the transmission of, unsolicited marketing materials by electronic mail to an individual subscriber UNLESS the recipient of the electronic mail has previously notified you, the sender, that he/she consents, for the time being, to receiving such communications. 2). You cannot transmit, nor instigate the transmission of any marketing by electronic mail (whether solicited or unsolicited) to any subscriber (whether corporate or individual) where (a) The identity of the sender has been disguised or concealed; or (b) a valid address to which the recipient can send an opt-out request has not been provided. A solicited message is one that you have actively invited. An unsolicited marketing message that you have opted into receiving is one that you have not invited but you have indicated that you do not, for the time being object to receiving. VII. MOBILE TELEPHONE CALLS
8 It is now an offence in the UK to cause or permit someone to make or receive a mbile call whilst they are driving. Please bear this in mind when contacting other current or potential associates or customers. VIII. INDIVIDUAL EXPERT ADVICE Please take the above information merely as general guidelines that do not claim to be exhaustive or complete. Obviously, this information cannot take into consideration every and all the legal, tax, and social security aspects of each individual situation.
