Zeva indemnify its agency clients from the new Onshore False Self Employment Legislation
With the introduction of new 'onshore false self-employment' legislation, many recruitment agencies have been told that they must move all of their self-employed contractors to their own PAYE payroll or PAYE umbrella model.
The advice to our agency clients is NOT TO PANIC, and to resist a QUICK FIX.
Our legal team believe that self-employment isn’t dead. Simply switching genuinely self-employed contractors to any PAYE model may not be the solution.
Our process will ensure that all contractors are evaluated individually by a two tier process using both Earnings and Employment Status. Once evaluated, a recommendation will be given as to whether the contractor should be PAYE, SELF-EMPLOYED or our new HYBRID Model.
This new Hybrid Model allows a self-employed worker to remain self-employed, even if their payments are subject to tax and National Insurance under the new legislation.
We have a 100% success record in defending our control tests, and have taken our time and considered carefully all options. We feel that this approach combined with our continued investment in compliance is the best solution to protect our clients.
Zeva is so confident that we will indemnify any client that adopts this approach.
