Supplying temporary workers has always been a minefield in terms of compliance, and since the IR35 rules changed in April 2021 this has become even more complex. Two years on, and businesses are still grappling with whether to take the risk of IR35 or avoid IR35 altogether by engaging the agency workers directly or via an umbrella company.
Agencies may operate PAYE for many reasons, be it hirer demand, control or maybe just low rates. Whatever the reasons, it is important to understand the rights, responsibilities and common problems. Getting it wrong can be costly.
What are the key risk areas, or flashpoints for claims and how can you minimise the risk?
We would like to invite you to explore this subject with our expert presenter, looking at how all this works, the risks and benefits, the contractual requirements, and the pitfalls to avoid.
If you are unable to make this session, recordings will also be available, contact us for more information.
