employment income?

There is a Sales Agent working at a new housing site.

She is employed and paid a wage by an estate agent.

The builder/developer pays the estate agent a fee for each house sold by the agent.

The builder/developer also pays the agent a commission for each house sold by her - directly to the sales agent (not via the estate agent).

So is this payment employment income? or self employment income?

Is anyone liable for employers NI? if so who?

employed by both
The builder should identify her employed/self employed status and from the info it appears she is employed by both - one on salary the other by commission
