If your recruitment agency is not prepared for the new laws coming into effect in September 2017, you should be seriously concerned. The consequences for non-compliance include unlimited fines and custodial sentences. Partnering with Churchill Knight will help your recruitment agency remain compliant with HMRC legislation and can ensure your consultants operate effectively and within the law moving forward.
A background to the new laws
The Criminal Finances Act 2017 and additional new regulations will be coming into effect in September 2017, leaving recruitment agencies with very little time to prepare. The new laws will focus on eliminating the facilitation of tax evasion. HMRC has confirmed they will hand out severe penalties for non-compliance including custodial sentences for managers and directors, as well as unlimited fines.
Free telephone consultation
We are encouraging every recruitment agency that reads this to contact us and take advantage of a free telephone consultation. Our dedicated Agency Team is fully trained and up-to-date on the new laws that are being introduced by HMRC. However important you think your question is, we would be happy to hear from you and provide the necessary level of support.
Book a meeting at your office
A Churchill Knight Account Manager would be delighted to visit your recruitment agency and discuss the new laws. You may benefit from gathering your consultants together and letting our team present to them about the Criminal Finances Act 2017 and what they must do in order to remain compliant. Please contact us with the details above to arrange your meeting.
PSL Management Software
When you partner with Churchill Knight, your consultants will have exclusive access to an innovative and leading Preferred Supplier List (PSL) Management tool. This will allow them to send your complaint PSL directly to candidates so that they can make an informed decision on which compliant accountancy or payroll to use.
Referral Procedure Manual
Our experts have produced a Referral Procedure Manual for our partnered recruitment agencies. It is now vital that every referral made by one of your consultants is to a trustworthy accountancy and payroll provider who can prove their compliance with HMRC. We have created a quick checklist for your consultants to study before referring a candidate to an accountancy or payroll provider.
Impartial PSL Review
With an extensive knowledge of the industry, our Account Managers are available to provide you with a free and impartial PSL review. Obviously, we would love to find ourselves on your PSL, but you can trust our dedicated team to provide you with their expert insight into the accountancy and payroll providers you are, or are planning to start referring your candidates to.
Time is seriously running out
Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd works closely with hundreds of recruitment agencies and provides a leading contractor accountancy, CIS payroll and PAYE umbrella service to their candidates, in full compliance with HMRC.
We understand that there is a lot of important information to take on board regarding the new laws and as a result, our specialists are encouraging you to give us a call and arrange a free consultation either on the phone or in your office.
