Weight Watchers Tribunal Decision

The decision of the First Tier Tribunal that some 1,700 team leaders at Weight Watchers were employees for tax purposes has been upheld.

The Upper Tier Tribunal has upheld the First Tier Tribunal decision that some 1,700 team leaders at Weight Watchers were employees for tax purposes, and not operating on a selfemployed basis, between the period April 2001 to 2009.

This decision will have a significant impact on Weight Watchers who are reportedly expected to have to settle somewhere in the region of £23 million in tax and NICs as a result of the decision.

Although unconfirmed at this stage, it is widely reported that Weight Watchers will appeal this decision.
