Employment advisory services

Many employment situations only arise from time to time. Frequent changes in the rules make it hard for employers to keep up to date on the best way to manage them.

WMT employment advisory services can guide you on the treatment of pay and benefits for more challenging employment situations such as:

Employment status – providing a professional opinion on whether individual workers are employed or self-employed and checking that your contracts and working practices are in line with their status. Getting this wrong can potentially lead to claims from HMRC for unpaid taxes.

Contracting through a personal service company (the IR35 test) – checking that your arrangements as a contractor through a limited company, partnership or limited liability partnership are on a business to business, not a business to employee basis.

Construction industry scheme – meeting your exacting obligations under the scheme so you retain the tax benefits of gross payment status.

National Minimum Wage (NMW) and National Living Wage (NLW) – advising on what types of pay and benefits count towards an employee’s NMW or NLW and what records you should retain to demonstrate your compliance.

Expatriate and inpatriate employees – advising on the tax and national insurance implications of sending employees to work abroad or taking on employees from overseas.

Terminations of employment or redundancy – identifying which elements of the package are subject to income tax and national insurance contributions (NICs).

Long term sickness absence – managing adjustments to pay and employer benefits throughout the absence and on the employees return to work or the termination of their employment due to ill health.

We can advise you on these situations as they arise or review your procedures and record keeping as part of an employer healthcheck.
