Risk of Non-Compliance

All recruitment business have reason to be concerned about the risks they face if they use non-compliant umbrella companies in their supply chain.

The Onshore/Offshore Intermediaries legislation (2014) and the introduction of the Criminal Finance Act (2017) mean that Directors of recruitment businesses can face unlimited financial penalties and criminal prosecutions if they work with non-compliant umbrella companies. And it’s only a matter of time until the government use the legislation to demonstrate they will tackle agencies who knowingly (or unknowingly) facilitate tax avoidance schemes by working with non-compliant umbrella companies.

Mortimer Childe can help you understand the risks you face and demonstrate how we can ensure you remain fully compliant and risk free. Call us on 01905 651035 for more details.
