Watch out Recruiters! You’re in the firing line.

As a key player in a recruitment business, you could be forgiven for feeling like the latest go-to political scapegoat.

Legislation has already targeted your sector.  New legislation is set to continue and further expand that trend.

This isn’t the time to close your eyes and look the other way.  Arm yourself with information.  Come to one of our seminars in the next few weeks. Stack your business’s arsenal in one easy hit.

~ From October (that’s this weekend!) the powerful new Gangmaster and Labour Abuse Authority will come into being with enforcement powers beyond the current licensed sectors.  We’ll look at the plans and highlight our concerns.

~UBER, Deliveroo and Hermes have made headlines with challenges to how they engage with the people who provide their services.  We’ll look at what all this means for you, the recruiters, and how you supply your clients.

~ T&S. Picking up where our popular January seminars left off, we’ll look at the impact of April 2016’s changes. What expenses are allowed? What are the current models and how ‘safe’ are they? What works…and what doesn’t?

~ MSCs.  Learn how the Managed Service Company and debt transfer provisions have been brought into play against the payroll provider, via a broad interpretation of the word ‘involvement’ in a recent case.

~ IR35, off-payroll working in the public sector.  What do we know about the Government’s proposals and what is likely to happen? What will these changes mean for your recruitment business or umbrella company? What is ‘the public sector’?  Is this a testing ground for a wider application of this principle?

~ Why is HMRC’s new accelerated payment regime a game-changer for those on the receiving end of a challenge?

~ We’ll look at HMRC’s current approach to the use of flat rate VAT schemes and the impact of their increased scrutiny in various sectors.  We’ll also look at specific concerns raised by the Road Haulage Association around false self-employment and tax evasion in their sector.   Is HMRC watching you?

~Apprenticeship Levy. We’ll help you to understand what this means and how it may impact on you and your clients.  What will your clients expect from you?  What can you do to ensure you achieve some value from the levy.
