Payments Pro was conceived after seeing the need for a fully HMRC and IR35 compliant service that caters to the public sector and going forwards, the private sector. Our backgrounds in both the law and finance sectors illustrated the problems that were being raised due to the introduction of the IR35 legislation and the lack of compliant services that serviced the legislation.
Since it’s introduction in April 2017, the volume of public sector workers choosing to work for Umbrella Companies has increased dramatically. This has brought about the appearance of many companies claiming to have a ‘solution’. Not all Umbrella Companies have been honest with their ‘solutions’ using loans for their clients with the aim to bypass IR35. These are illegal and go against the legislation set-up by the HMRC and those that use them will find themselves in contempt and will be breaking the UK tax law and at some point, will be held accountable.
Existing clients of ours are still battling with such companies to resolve the pay issues that they experienced throughout the first weeks of IR35. Not only is this time consuming but it is costly in most cases.
This increase in demand has grown Payments Pro Umbrella payroll from a simple accountancy and finance business to a streamlined, fully compliant payroll management company that services 1000’s within the public sector.
Here at Payments Pro Umbrella payroll we look to offer a safe, hassle free and compliant option to all public and private sector workers affected by the IR35 changes.
