Just Awesome

Honestly I was so desperate for a payroll company then while on a shift I mentioned it to fellow nurse and she told me Sarah from Accuratus Green will sort it. I was so adamant when I was making the call because of previous disappointments but I was amazed at how friendly Sarah was on the phone. We even had a giggle.

She explained the process and I won’t even lie to you the set up was like in a blink of the eye. In less than 3 hours I was all set up. Sarah is just awesome, she answers all your queries and makes you feel at ease. I have been trying to get nurses already to join Accuratus Green.

Thank you Sarah for being so efficient. I highly appreciate you.

Working through an umbrella company

Umbrella companies can be confusing, often they aren’t very transparent about what they do, but there is also a lot of misinformation, even the ones that take the welfare of their workers very seriously.

Here we give you some clear and independent information to help you understand more about working through an umbrella company and some tips on what to look out for so you can avoid any problems.

What is an umbrella company?

Umbrella companies are businesses that take on agency workers and other types of temporary workers as their own employees with continuous contracts of employment. Their sole purpose is to employ people like you (often called ‘contractors’). To meet the rules to be a ‘continuous’ employment.

Why have I been told to use an Umbrella Company?

Historically, if you found work through an agency, they would normally deal with your pay themselves. However, these days, agencies prefer not to do this as it saves them time and money and means they can concentrate on matching workers with available work. As such, they usually suggest that people use an umbrella company.

Because the umbrella company becomes your employer, they will deal with your pay and other employer obligations instead of the agency. This includes paying you your wages with tax and National Insurance (NIC) deducted as required by the Pay as You Earn (PAYE) system.

What are my Employment rights if I use an Umbrella Company?

You are an employee of the umbrella company and so have the same rights as any other employed person. These include the right to be paid the minimum wage, the right to paid holiday, the right to be auto enrolled into a pension (if you meet the relevant criteria) and to statutory benefits such as sick pay and maternity pay (provided you meet the relevant criteria). You can find more information about employee rights on GOV.UK.

It is worth noting that as an agency worker, you would get the main employment rights even if you did not work through an umbrella company. Working through an umbrella company can be beneficial in other ways, however. For example, it can provide a continuous payroll link from one assignment to the next, preventing problems like ‘emergency’ tax when you start a new assignment through a new agency. Sometimes they also provide things like shopping discounts and an online portal where you can track your pay.

Do the Agency Workers Regulations still apply?

Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) mean that agency workers should receive equal treatment compared to the end client’s own employees. Umbrella company employees are still classed as agency workers for the purposes of AWR. For example, you should be allowed to use any shared facilities (e.g. a staff canteen or childcare) from the first day you work in an assignment location. After 12 weeks’ continuous employment in the same role, you should get the same terms and conditions as the end client’s own employees, including pay and any annual leave above the minimum 28 days required by law (more on this later). There are rules in place which mean that your assignment cannot just be stopped as you get near 12 weeks of continuous work. You can find out more about AWR on the ACAS website.
There are lots of umbrella companies out there and the marketplace is very competitive. All umbrella companies should apply the same tax and employment law rules (although their margins may differ) and therefore what you are offered should broadly be the same from one umbrella company to the next. Any umbrella company that appears to offer higher than expected take home pay should be avoided as it is likely that they are doing something that is just not right.

Our solutions are all HMRC compliant, and we are specialists in assessing Supervision, Direction & Control (SDC).

Your Compliance in our Hands

IR35

WHAT IS IR35?

HMRC introduced the “Intermediaries Legislation”, that became known as IR35 in the 2000 budget.

The legislation was introduced to combat ‘disguised employees’. This refers to an individual who would be treated as an employee were it not for the fact that they provide their services via their own personal service company and paying less tax in the process.

Contractors working via limited companies are not liable to pay NICs on income taken as dividends, resulting technically in a revenue loss to the Treasury. As a result of this, IR35 exists to enforce proper working practices.

HOW IS IR35 STATUS DETERMINED?

To determine whether an individual is caught by IR35, HMRC will look at both the written contract between the limited company and the agency/end client along with the actual working practices.

In the event of an IR35 enquiry, the working practices will always tend to carry more weight than the written terms themselves.

If a compliant contract is in place, it is crucial that the actual working arrangements mirror the written terms. HMRC will seek clarification of a contractor’s working practices directly from their end client. It is vital that this process is carefully managed.

What Factors Are Considered when Deciding IR35?

The key factors considered when deciding IR35 status are: the extent and degree of control exercised by the client over the worker, the worker’s right to engage helpers or substitutes, mutuality of obligations between the worker and the client, financial risk of the worker, provision of equipment, basis of payment of the worker, personal factors, the existence of employee rights, termination of the contract, whether the worker is part and parcel of the client’s organisation, exclusive services and mutual intention.

This list is not exhaustive and case law shows not to treat this as a checklist to run through mechanically.

Instead, there are the factors that go towards painting the picture, whose overall effect must be evaluated.

Making a Difference

“We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in our hands to make the difference” Nelson Mandela

How making small changes can make a BIG difference. 

It can be overwhelming thinking about the damage we, as humans, have done to our planet, and continue to do, and many people think that they can’t make a difference. The truth is that one person making a change does make a difference, and a significant one at that. The average household in the UK produces more than a tonne of waste every year.

Each person in the UK throws away their own weight in rubbish every 7 weeks.
If just one household halved the amount, they threw away every year that’s half a tonne less going to landfill. If every household in the UK halved the amount that’s 13-14 million tonnes less rubbish every year.

Making a few small changes to your lifestyle can make a big difference. Here are a few ideas for you to consider; Buy less stuff; Buy secondhand; Support local businesses; Refuse plastic when buying fruit and vegetables; Stop Mowing your lawn; Don’t drive if you can walk; Pick-up litter; Stop buying bottled water; Request experiences or time as gifts; Eat less meat and dairy.

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try” John F Kennedy
