Recruitment Update: Issue 2, 2016

October 2016

Welcome to our October issue of Recruitment Update, which rounds up some of the key tax and accounting issues facing recruiters.

taxation of termination payments

The taxation of termination payments

HM Revenue & Customs has consulted on proposed changes to the taxation of termination payments, due to take effect from 6 April 2018. We have produced a briefing document which outlines the proposals.

benefits in kind

Consultations on employee benefits

Three consultations have been published which propose changes to the tax treatment of benefits in kind, including those provided via salary sacrifice, where there is an employee contribution towards the cost of a benefit, and company car taxation. We summarise the proposed changes.

team survey for recruiters

Have you completed our survey of UK recruiters?

In conjunction with TEAM, we are once again carrying out a benchmarking survey of recruitment businesses in the UK.

The results of the survey are a valuable annual tool for recruiters to assess the performance of their business against their peers.

It should take around 10 minutes to complete.

The latter part of the survey does ask for some financial information – this is optional, but we would ask you to complete as much as possible. You are able to download details of the specific information required before starting the survey proper.
