FCSA hosts free seminars for recruitment industry on the effects of the new T&S legislation

The Freelancer & Contractor Services Association (FCSA), the UK’s leading independent professional employment services trade association, is holding a series of free seminars up and down the country to equip recruiters with all the information they need ahead of April 6th when the new travel and subsistence legislation comes into force.

From April, umbrella companies will be prevented from delivering contractors’ properly incurred tax relief on travel and subsistence expenses at source which will mean significant changes to the way the sector operates.  There are also new rules to determine eligibility for the tax relief, and both of these changes will have a knock-on effect for the whole industry.  FCSA wants to ensure that recruiters receive the best advice available from industry experts on how to manage their supply chain and minimise any potential risks.

Industry experts from Ernst & Young, Brabners and Worklab will outline the legislative changes, best practice around the new rules and the risks and challenges they present, how to engage with providers and balance commercial best practice and risk management as well as providing insight on how the marketplace is set to react to the changes.

The seminar dates and locations are:

  • Birmingham: 25th February 2016, 14.30 – 17.00
    Glasgow: 29th February 2016, 14.30 – 17.00
    Manchester: 15th March, 14.30 – 17.00
    London: 22nd March, 08.00 – 10.00

Said Julia Kermode, CEO of FCSA: “There are just a few weeks until the new travel and subsistence legislation comes into effect and we are keen to ensure its effective implementation in the best interests of the supply chain and the flexible workforce that it supports.  These free events will provide recruiters with everything they need to know from some of the UK’s leading tax and legal experts.”
