Contractor vs. Vendor
I'm a little confused about treating a company as a vendor or a subcontractor. For example, it's easy to determine that a person that we pay to do cleaning, plumbing, electrical, etc could be treated as a 1099 contractor. But what about companies that we pay to simply come in providing labor and materials like those that install a septic tank, installing irrigation systems, garages, etc.It seems that some things should be treated as business expenses and not all people on payroll should be treated as 1099 contractors.
