Outsourced Employment Solutions
A simple and reliable option that gives you the opportunity to outsource all of your contractor payroll and employment activity – reducing costs, risks, and time spent on compliance and process, while providing a solution that is simple and transparent for all contractors to understand.
Outsourced Employment (PEO)
For many end hirers and agencies, managing a payroll for employees is a huge distraction. Our outsourced employment (PEO) solution means you can outsource the payroll and employment responsibilities for your contractors, safe in the knowledge that they are getting paid accurately and on time, and your compliance responsibilities are taken care of. This reduces your administrative time and costs, mitigates risk, and allows you to focus on your core activities.
We’ll also help you manage the payroll and employment of contractors who are now classed as ‘inside IR35’. From April 2021, the responsibility for determining a contractor’s IR35 status and paying the correct taxes will fall on end hirers, with employment agencies facing liability for unpaid taxes. It is expected that many contractors who were previously operating ‘outside IR35’ will now be classed as ‘inside’. For agencies that don’t wish to take on the payroll and employment responsibilities for large volumes of contractors, our outsourced employment service is a great solution. In particular, it makes pay simpler to understand which is beneficial to contractors who may have to switch their working practices. We’ll take care of everything to provide you with a hassle-free payroll and employment solution, so you can reduce the admin effort and costs of contractor payroll.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Our outsourced employment service is designed to be a simple, straight-forward way to manage your contingent workforce. We take care of all administrative areas including employment rights, benefits, payroll, and tax deductions, so that we can provide you with an efficient employment solution.
You’ll pay the employer overheads and outsource fee out of the contract rate, and the contractor will simply receive a payslip with their gross pay.
With our outsourced employment solution, you’ll benefit from less risk, reduced costs of contractor payroll, and peace of mind that your work force is 100% complaint.
