Market Research: Impact of legislation on temp worker payments
Firstly through the attempt to eradicate self-employment for agency workers through the Onshore Intermediaries Legislation that came into effect in April 2014 and secondly the plan announced on the Budget 2015 removing the right for workers at temporary worksites to offset travel and subsistence against tax. But how will industry fund it? Workers previously contracted as self-employed will already have been switched to PAYE or umbrella schemes and may have suffered a drop in take-home pay as a result if agencies were unwilling to award corresponding increases in gross pay rates. Workers currently on umbrella contracts will demand wage increases to offset higher tax, especially if they currently claim significant relief on account of a long commute to a temporary worksite.
This market research survey is designed to produce an overview of the current agency contract worker landscape (a picture otherwise only available to HMRC) and test industries future intentions regarding travel & subsistence.
