Each business is different and there is no one size fits all.  But a common theme is the reliance on a contingent workforce to bring agility, plug skills gaps and manage payroll costs. The complexities of both tax and legal requirements are often understated and misunderstood. Additionally, with the introduction of IR35 off-payroll reforms came new requirements for all parties in the supply chain.

With the risk now sitting firmly with the end client, contracts have become more complex. This has seen risk averse organisations opting to limit, or ban altogether, the use of contractors.

We can help.

We work with you to determine the scope of your audit and provide a bespoke approach to suit your needs.

  • providing verification of tax payments
  • confirming legal obligations are met through the contractual process
  • extending to cover broader obligations through workers rights or equal pay

Our legal and tax teams can navigate you through the process.

Legacy Supply Chain Auditing

Legacy Supply Chain Auditing

With HMRC continuing to increase activity in the temporary worker industry the Tax risk accumulated within the sector is vast.

This has become a key point of M&A activity in the space. We are commonly seeing agencies preparing for an acquisition, only for their value to be reduced due to identified tax risk within their supply chain from inadequate compliance measures.

If you are an agency considering an acquisition in the next 3-5 years, our team will work with you to eliminate ongoing risk, account for legacy risk and prove compliance to a potential acquirer thereby increasing your presence and value in the market.
