I`m self employed, I work most of the time for a company in suffolk ( i live in london )

I drive up to suffolk to collect their van ( i get no renumeration for doing this, no fuel expenses, I dont even get paid for the day i spend driving up to suffolk)

I travel the country selling their products at shows & events.

The van stays with me for 75% of the year & they pay the fuel

I invoice on a weekly basis per show

I am considered by them to be A Sub Contractor

I pay my own NI & Tax

According to their Risk Assessment all employees need to have Manual Handling BUT I`m not an employee

Am i obliged to do this course ?
