Client Public Sector Products

SThree have partnered with QDOS to bring an innovative offering to the market with Status Review, our determination assurance tool.

From April, the off-payroll legislation means that The Public Sector Client is tasked with the determination of whether a contractor role sits within the legislation or not. Essentially, is the role ‘inside’ IR35, or ‘outside’.

This offering with QDOS provides a review of the determination against the facts of the contractor’s working practices. We want our customers to feel confident and supported in the determinations they are making.

Status Review will do just that, offer a level of security, assurance and protection around the determination. With a trusted brand and impressive accuracy level we believe that this review can better understand the complete picture of unique engagements versus the fully computerised HMRC Employment Status Service.

Where an ‘Outside IR35’ determination has been provided as a result of Status Review, the liability for mis-classification will be undertaken by us the ‘Payer’.

Direct 
We can onboard any direct runners and supply them via either a schedule of work or compliant Framework. As well as supporting you with your determinations, this also means that we become the ‘payer’ and are therefore liable for calculating any due tax and reporting to HMRC if the roles are deemed to be inside.

Deemed 
Where a contractor role via a Personal Service Company (PSC) is found to be inside of the off-payroll regulations and ‘caught’ by IR35 as a ‘deemed employee’. This means that the Personal Service Company (PSC) will need to be taxed at source. SThree have a payroll mechanism which will support the deemed calculations and make the appropriate remittance to HMRC on RTI. This ensures your organisation is fully compliant with the new rules.

Comply  
We are happy to accept introductions from non-framework agencies in order to provide you with a fully compliant supply via frameworks. Primarily aimed at our customers within the NHS but also applicable to the wider public sector, as a proud CCS Framework provider, we can take on existing contractors that may be with a non-compliant agency and ensure they are provided in line with all framework requirements and off-payroll rules.
