Employment Status

The employment status of a worker is a key consideration for a business throughout that business’s relationship with that worker. It will determine the legal rights and protections that the individual has and sets out the employer’s obligations towards that person. Getting the status wrong can be costly to a business reputationally as well as financially. We can work with employers to consider status issues proactively before the worker starts and throughout your working relationship through consideration of appropriate case law, HMRC approaches and the viewpoints of both the business as a whole and the worker.  

We can do this by: 

  • Offering staff training on the HMRC tools available (including the CEST Tool Indicator) and how these interplay with recent tribunal cases 
  • Acting as an independent party for status determination disagreements
  • Advising on remuneration packages and contracts when taking on new workers and for any relevant contractual changes
  • Talking to off-payroll workers regarding the changes and how this will impact them
  • Offering Taxwise insurance that can help with HMRC costs in the event of an Enquiry

Global Mobility

Having an agile workforce can be extremely rewarding both for a business and its employees; however this doesn’t come without it’s challenges. Our team can offer proactive and holistic advice for moves both internally and across the world through collaboration with our international Kreston network. With the various covid lockdowns showing that employees can work remotely, more companies are needing to adapt with how they engage with their staff now that it has been shown that they can work anywhere. 

We can help you consider how to structure these arrangements in a cost effective and compliant manner that fits the needs of your business. Services we can offer include:

  • Individual consultations with you and your employees regarding your particular situation
  • Advising on tax and social security strategy on remunerating your staff efficiently across jurisdictions and the cost impact to your business
  • Advice on the set up and operation of payroll making use of relevant payroll concessions
  • Working with legal advisors to offer holistic advice on immigration and the tax/legal considerations of a move

Employee Benefits

Benefits are a great and flexible way to motivate and retain staff. They provide a method of offering key incentives such as private medical or a company car which may be a distinguishing factor for prospective employees. 

As an employer you may already be offering a benefit package to your employees or you may be thinking of introducing one in the future. We are here to help both you and your employees maximise the value of these benefits by ensuring they are provided in the most tax efficient way and that you are making full use of the available exemptions.  

We can work with you to design or review your current benefits package to ensure this is cost-effective and attractive to your employees, helping you create a rewarding work environment at the lowest cost.  

We can also help you to avoid the common pitfalls and misconceptions around the benefits legislation, providing relevant and timely advice on the benefits that are relevant to your business whilst helping to reduce the risk of non-compliance.
