With all the legislation surrounding supply chain compliance, and the significant liabilities that can be imposed, it is now becoming essential that end clients ensure their recruitment partners only allow contractors to engage with compliant payment intermediaries.
The Off-Payroll Working in The Private Sector rules define that end clients could become liable where they allow non-compliance in their supply chain.
With the increased risk of liabilities coming back up the supply chain where a service provider fails to meet its obligations it is now more important than ever before that end clients ensure their recruitment partners only allow contractors to engage with compliant providers.
Many clients are now amending their contracts to define which providers can be used in their supply chain.
Defining Professional Passport approved providers within these options means that you will only engage with compliance accredited firms.
Making this a contractual obligation in its self is not sufficient you will also need to ensure that your recruitment partners are adhering to the requirements. Professional Passport is due to launch a new tool for end client members that brings complete transparency to teh supply chain. Giving end clients a simple verification that their workers are actually engaged by an accredited provider.
This service provides a complete answer for clients who want to ensure they minimise their risks in the supply chain.
