Responding to the Autumn Statement in which George Osborne announced that the Government will be consulting on the use of umbrella companies, Matthew Brown, Managing Director of giant group comments:
“We welcome the planned crackdown on non-compliant umbrella employers in the UK. The flexible workforce is an important contributor to the UK economy and so any measures that improve the working options of contractors across the country, and at the same time stamp out malpractice, can only be a good thing. At giant we offer an over-arching employment contract that ensures each contractor not only receives the statutory benefits that they are legally entitled to, but also remain compliant in terms of tax reporting and national insurance.”
“As a business that is committed to full and ongoing HMRC compliance and ensuring contractors have access to fair working opportunities, we continuously support any measures that ensure the flexible workforce has access to the relevant employment rights. We intend to participate in the discussion document due to be published by the Government to not only assist with this crackdown on non-compliance, but also guide any reforms to ensure they meet the needs of contractors.”
