IR35

The private sector reform of the IR35 rules came into force in April 2021. This means your clients now have additional responsibilities, and the only viable solution is to assess the risks and adjust processes to comply with the new rules. We’d also strongly suggest engaging compliance experts to advise your clients and keep everyone on track. However, it’s possible some of your clients will favour a strategy that looks easier or cheaper.

Umbrella Company

A good, compliant umbrella company will have a standard contract of employment (COE) that is by necessity designed to cover many different circumstances. It will not usually be possible to negotiate the details of your COE, and there should be no need to do so, because it’s specifically written for your benefit as a contractor and to fit in with any assignment you might take on. In this article we’ll cover what you need to know about umbrella company employment contracts, relating specifically to Orange Genie’s contract of employment.

Umbrella Company

Umbrella company employment has important advantages for you as a recruiter and your contractors, but it’s vital to make sure everyone understands what’s happening. The rate paid to the umbrella includes their margin and costs, as well as the contractor’s pay. Occasionally, contractors misinterpret this, believing the uplifted rate is the amount that will be paid to them.

Umbrella Company

Since we launched our employee benefits platform, Orange Genie Edge, the benefits we provide have become extremely important to our umbrella company employees. We’d hate to think that anyone is struggling through without this support, so in this article we’re looking at some of the most important benefits, and explaining how you can get the most out of them.

IR35

As the IR35 reform came into force in April 2021, recruiters and their clients have understandably been looking at alternative models and ways of working that might provide advantages in terms of IR35. One of the most talked about is the Statement of Works model, and in this article we’ll look at what this involves, and what difference it makes to the application of the IR35 rules.
