The Government yesterday published legislation which will mean that in almost all circumstances a temporary worker being paid via an umbrella who employs workers that have paid relevant travel and subsistence expenses free of tax and NICs will no longer be able to do so. The only exception will be if the umbrella is able to show that no one exercises supervision, direction or control over the worker.
We will be liaising closely with our clients over the next few weeks as EdenGroup is able to provide alternative PAYE products specific to requirements. Ultimately there is no reason why we can’t carry on acting as an employer for temporary workers post 6 April 2016 and until then nothing changes in how our employees are being paid.
EdenGroup aim to make any transitions for our employees as smooth as possible over the coming months. Therefore if an assignment is likely or expected to take any of our employees beyond 6 April 2016 we will advise them of any necessary changes during this period.
