With Christmas just around the corner, we watched with festive-fuelled expectation to see what goodies – or lumps of coal – the Chancellor had for businesses, contractors, and employees in his Autumn Statement. Jeremy Hunt’s address in the House of Commons this afternoon unveiled several key measures that, he hopes, will chart a course of fiscal prudence, complemented by the introduction of targeted measures to stimulate business investment, enhance workforce skills, and provide some much-needed relief to workers and the self-employed. We’ve unpicked what he announced and the impact it might h ..read more

Danbro
by Sam Wright
5M ago
The UK umbrella employment market is often under scrutiny. Unfortunately, as with any industry, there are those who act in bad faith. And, in so doing, they stain the landscape in which legitimate, reputable providers operate. Despite strong regulation and the airing of concerns by industry leaders and accreditors like the FCSA, non-compliance has been an issue for a long time. That’s why the government initiated a consultation aimed at tackling non-compliance head on. The objective was clear: ensure a level playing field for all. It’s an attempt by the state to protect the reputation of the ..read more

On Wednesday (March 15th) the Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, delivered his Spring Budget to the House of Commons. With the press dubbing this the ‘Back to Work Budget’ in the days leading up to its delivery, Mr Hunt included plenty of measures aimed at tempting non-working, working-age people back into employment. This amounted to several incentives targeting those considering early retirement; support for disabled people and those temporarily out of work; and measures helping new and working parents (particularly those with children under the age of three). Meanwhile, for businesses, there was th ..read more

On Wednesday (October 27th) the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, delivered his 2021 Autumn Budget to the House of Commons. With the economic outlook continuing to improve, and with lockdowns (hopefully) a thing of the past, this Budget – the second of the year – was an opportunity for Mr Sunak to make good on his promise to ‘move on from crisis-management mode’ following his first 18 pandemic-ravaged months in office. After all, the economy is recovering faster than many of our contemporaries and borrowing is set to fall by more than 50% – from 7.9% to 3.3%. However, the Chancellor still faced a pl ..read more

As a result of the pandemic, more people than ever are engaging in flexible working and working from home. Whether it’s due to self-isolation, the closure of office spaces, or looking after children or vulnerable relatives, remote and flexible working has escalated at a rate no one could have foreseen. That includes those (such as ourselves) who’ve been practicing – and promoting – flexible working since way before the pandemic. So, though the circumstances are extreme – and far from desirable – will this prolonged and enforced change in our working style persist beyond 2021? Could we be at t ..read more

Umbrella Companies & ESM2390

by Sam Wright
3y ago
Much has been made recently of non-compliant umbrella companies and the need to crack down on their unscrupulous activities. It’s something we’ve warned contractors about for many years. But, worryingly – and owing to what seems like a lack of understanding of our sector from certain sections of the media, unfounded reservations have been made about the practices of upstanding and accredited umbrella companies. In the build-up to the introduction of new rules surrounding IR35 in the private sector, several articles appeared seeking to discredit the integrity and reputability of our industry a ..read more
