Compliance

Compliance is something that we really take seriously at Simplify and we make sure that we are always up-to-date with the latest legislative changes.

When using Simplify you can be sure of the following:

  • We only offer a PAYE Umbrella Option and will not offer a Gross Payment facility to any of our contractors.
  • No contractors are directors of Simplify.  The only directors are the owners of the company.
  • No part of any company within the Simplify Group is based outside England.
  • We hold ID for all contractors and where they are non-EU nationals, work permits are also verified.
  • No payments are made to a contractor until their registration has been audited by our Contracts & Compliance team, and approved by a Director.
  • Payment through Simplify allows for all the red tape surrounding IR35 to be removed as the contractor becomes an employee via an Overarching Contract of Employment.
  • Payments are only made to the contractor’s personal bank account.  No payments are forwarded to a third party organisation for processing.
  • In line with HMRC guidelines, all contractors are paid at least National Minimum Wage for every hour they work, and we do not operate a Pay Day by Pay Day Tax Relief model.

To help further reassure our agencies, we invited external auditors to come into our business to undertake a very rigorous audit on all processes.

The Professional Passport team investigated our compliance within every aspect of our business, from the contractor’s payment breakdowns to our payments to HMRC in regards to PAYE and NI contributions.  We were very pleased to have passed with flying colours.

When our agencies are also members of the Professional Passport Network, they also benefit from a £5 million Debt Transfer Insurance when using Simplify, which allows for further piece of mind.

  •       I would just like to say you guys are great and I would highly recommend you. Any time I’ve had a question or issue with expenses sheet everyone is so fast to respond and really helpful. The same of the phones – whenever I’ve had to call there’s always a cheerful, friendly and helpful voice at the other end. Is nice to know so thought I’d say!

  •       I began using Simplify in April 2013 after my new position required me to work as a contractor, something I hadn’t done before. From the outset Simplify were professional, courteous and fantastically quick on answering any queries I had. The setting up of my contract with them was simple and easy to understand, easily taking away any concerns I had about working this way. Timesheets and Expenses sheets were emailed to me making this a simple process to getting paid without any of the headaches associated with being a contractor. All members of staff I have had the pleasure of speaking to have made this a painless journey and I would have no hesitation in recommending Simplify to anyone I meet. So much so that the faith I have in Simplify allows me to look at employment options I had previously dismissed.
