Osborne Clarke seminar, 6th February
The impact of the new offshore and onshore intermediary legislation: Minimising the risk to your business whilst protecting shareholder value
Are you equipped to address your clients’ concerns about tax, commercial and reputational risk?
As supply chains become increasingly complex, the introduction of the GAAR and draft legislation targeting offshore and onshore payment intermediaries have further heightened concerns. Hirers (and investors) have concerns over tax debt transfer and no longer want staffing companies to be associated with schemes which present a commercial and reputational risk for them and the workers.
All parties will want to see suppliers operate independently verifiable & lsquo;compliance’ practices. But old & lsquo;compliance’ systems cannot solve new problems. It is essential for recruiters to review what is and what is not safe (and acceptable to hirers), as well as look afresh at their contractual supply models to understand:
• What risk rests with your business, especially in relation to tax, and how can you mitigate it?
• What are the alternative lower risk solutions?
• Whether your sales team is equipped to explain the benefits of and sell new staffing models?
• Whether your existing contract models still provide risk protection for hirers without critically damaging shareholder value for your company?
In this seminar we will look to address these questions and provide an insight into how similar developments have been dealt with overseas.
