FCSA tells members not to worry about increased HMRC scrutiny

FCSA tells members not to worry about increased HMRC scrutiny 

Reacting to HMRC's statement on "pay day by pay day tax relief models", FCSA has told their members that as it is a requirement of FCSA membership to ensure that their umbrella employees are always paid at least minimum wage and that expenses are not offset against this amount, then they should not be concerned by the extra HMRC scrutiny.

Stuart Davis, Chairman of FCSA said:

'Our view is that if the umbrella provider ensures that its employees are paid at or above NMW after deduction of travel and expenses payments then they should not be affected by further HMRC scrutiny.

This again demonstrates the advantage of FCSA membership and adherence to our code which sets the highest standards for service providers and gives comfort to the clients of FCSA members who will not suddenly find the taxman unexpectedly calling because their service provider has not followed the law.

We welcome any moves by HMRC to look into any business models which have been constructed with the intention of operating contrary to the intention of Parliament. They have no place in the service provider industry as they do not help their clients in either the short or long term.'
