How are Agencies and BITE working together post Financial Intermediaries & managing IR35 to be compliant?

 BITE Contractors Ltd.(or its sister companies) are not an agency or competitor to agencies, we offer help ensure contractors stay compliant notably with PSC’s and IR35 providing payroll PAYE employment where needed and compliant advice to the public sector contract market plus the use of our compliant portal!

1.BITE Compliance assists through training IT Contractors, Accountancy, finance and Banking contractors and Interim’s to hone their consultancy and client skills,establish their personal brand and learn to market and advertise their services. Candidates using BITE’s coaching and mentoring services gain interviews quickly and close interviews successfully gaining the job they or an agency pitch them for! This helps the people we train and coach gain a job or contract assignment quickly, helping both the candidate and the agency!

2.BITE Contractors Ltd acts as a Marketing Agent and Compliance Manager for professional Limited company contractors!

Marketing: BITE assists in their marketing and personal branding, helping to develop their career similarly to an actor or footballers agent.It uses the expertise to ensure Contractors gain the very best opportunities whilst fully understanding how to grow and develop their skills in an ever changing marketplace!

Compliance: A big part of what we do is assist in Limited company PSC compliance  and understanding their status against IR35 and the financial intermediaries legislation. Many contractors working in the public sector now (post April 2017) have to work as a PAYE temporary worker paying full tax and N.I. IR35 status is now critical to the viability of contractors working through a limited company in the private sector too!

3.PCS Compliance – Our accountants help set up Limited company contractors (PSC) ensuring that they are compliant by insisting any contractor wishing to use a PSC is advised through an independent firm of qualified accountants and is therefore fully compliant as a Director and shareholder with a material interest. They ensure each Limited company contractor use their Contractor compliancy portal and are independently assessed as to whether they are working inside or outside of IR35 (this is particularly important in the public sector at the moment) and those caught by IR35 ARE OFFERED A COMPLIMENTARY PAYROLL SERVICE.

AWR 2011

From April 2011 new legislation provides agency workers the entitlement to the same or no less favourable treatment with respect to basic employment and working conditions, if and when they complete a 12 week qualifying period . The legislation does not greatly affect well paid contract professionals either; employed PAYE permanently by a consultancy and paid between assignments” Article 10” or engaged through a Personal Service Company (PSC or TLC) that has opted out and is either operating outside IR35 or operating a PAYE payroll.Working with full time BITE Consultants or opted out Limited company contractors does reduce the amount of red tape administration considerably for agencies!
