Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd hosted our second off-payroll seminar in Whitechapel on Friday 1st February and the event was another success. Find out what we discussed and why your recruitment agency must prepare for off-payroll in the private sector by April 2019 and not April 2020.
An overview of the seminar
Our most recent off-payroll seminar was held at the Holiday Inn, Whitechapel on Friday 1st February 2019. Our objective was to get a selection of recruitment professionals together for an hour-long presentation from Crawford Temple, CEO at Professional Passport. As an industry expert, Crawford was the ideal speaker to share his knowledge on the upcoming changes and to offer advice on how to adapt and use the legislation to develop new business.
Ciaran Woodcock, Head of Marketing and Field Sales at Churchill Knight, said: “It was great to bring so many recruitment professionals together again to learn about off-payroll in the private sector. We have been accredited by Professional Passport for many years and sharing their knowledge with our partners has always been a priority. Crawford has over a decade of experience in the industry and everyone in attendance will agree that his presentation was extremely beneficial. When you partner with Churchill Knight, you will get far more than just reliable payroll services for your candidates. You will also get exclusive knowledge and ongoing advice from Professional Passport that will help your agency remain compliant and grow in the future”.
