For many years recruitment businesses have supplied company contractors to their clients and in many cases have obtained opt outs from them. This has meant that both the agency regulations and tax obligations on supplying businesses were largely irrelevant. Inevitably understanding those regulations and others, such as the Agency Worker Regulations, has not been seen as important.
However, now that clients are wary of using contractors because of the IR35 rules which place tax risk on the client, the contractor model is no longer so attractive. This leads to a greater use of PAYE and umbrella models – both of which do bring all the regulations into play.
It makes sense for businesses that have historically relied upon the contractor model to gen up on these regulations. To explain the rules in an easy way Lawspeed has set up a series of webinars addressing the requirements in bitesize chunks. These are suitable for both start-up businesses and as a refresher for existing businesses who want to ensure they have the best insight from leading market experts.
Lawspeed is a specialist legal service for recruiters, providing support for its many corporate clients since 1997.
The webinars will run from 13th April 2023, book your place to gain the insight required for success.
