NES Global Talent Hosts Free Seminars to help Businesses Manage Contractor Legislation Risks Following Chancellor’s Autumn Statement
NES Global Talent, the global manpower specialist, is hosting a series of free breakfast seminars across the country to help businesses that utilise contract workers to manage IR35 tax legislation and Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) risks.
Chancellor George Osborne pledged to strengthen IR35 in 2013 as part of his Autumn Statement. The workshops cover the key principles of IR35, the impact of the legislation from a client perspective as well as how the risks can be mitigated.
The seminars, which take place in Manchester, London and Aberdeen on 30th and 31st January and 6th February respectively, also focus on the principles of AWR, the associated risks and the impact of both IR35 and AWR on forthcoming pension legislation.
Rebecca Ridley, NES Global Talent Associate Director UK Client Development, said: “As legislation is strengthened, it’s crucial that companies keep up to date with the latest developments not just to protect themselves but also to avoid a potential negative impact both on costs and the ability to attract talent into their business.” “We are committed to helping manage the risks faced by our clients and are delighted to be offering these seminars, which not only cover crucial contract worker legislation, but also provide the perfect networking opportunity.”
The seminars will be presented by Stephen Rookes, Commercial and Legal Director at NES Global Talent, who was Chairman of the Association of Professional Staffing Companies during the implementation of the AWR and currently chairs the Engineering Sector Group and John Hill, of John Hill & Associates, who has considerable experience in employment tax and IR35 issues and has helped advise HM Treasury.
