Ad Hoc Services
You can purchase services on a per hour basis with no obligation.
These services are paid for on a monthly basis for an agreed amount of time in advance. Retainer services are far more cost effective than ad hoc services and, if used effectively, can be a valuable addition to you business.
The services are delivered by phone, email, Skype or any other internet communication and you get priority treatment over ad hoc services. On-site visits are possible and can be arranged upon request.
Employment status is the status of an individual for the purposes of tax or employment law, i.e. whether they are employed or self-employed. For tax purposes it might just as well be called ‘tax status’, but it has become known as employment status. Employment status is established ultimately by case law but, on an everyday basis, it is up to the business or individual to figure out whether they are employed or self-employed.
The consequences of incorrect classification of employment status, however, can be very costly to a business. If a business engages with self-employed sole traders and HMRC seeks to reclassify them as disguised employees, the tax bill can be huge, going back six years and could also include fines and penalties.
A self-employed individual could also make a claim for employment rights and seek re-classification as an employee.
All contracts, regulatory issues and general business advice for companies that work within the recruitment sector. The relevant legislation includes:
IR35 - Intermediaries Legislation
The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003
Employment Intermediaries legislation (s.44 ITEPA 2003 - as amended)
Employment Intermediaries Reporting Requirments
Managed Service Company legislation
Agency Workers Regulations
The executive or business coaching industry has grown and there are companies that supply coaches who are self-employed or limited company to clients. Much of the legislation above also affects this type of company or any company that supplies contractors where a fee is taken.
There are many businesses that are probably completely unaware that they are acting as a so called 'employment business' and that the legislation applies to them equally as it does to a traditional recruitment 'agency'. The recent HMRC Employment Intermediaries Reporting Requirements are a good example, where any business who supplies the services of a self-employed person or an individual who provides their services through a limited company, should be reporting certain details to HMRC. If these reports are not made, penalties will be incurred.
