Refer your candidates in confidence

GCRD offers a range of services for recruitment agencies. There are many advantages for recruiters referring candidates to a trusted umbrella company such as GCRD. Following on from recent tax scandals, including the Panama Papers and advise Papers and various loan write-off schemes, a new corporate “failure to prevent” offence is being introduced from 30th September with a severe penalty regime that should make all agencies sit up and take note. It is, therefore, vital to ensure that any contractors engaged through your agency are being paid through a compliant provider such as a reputable umbrella company like GCRD or into their Personal Service Company with accounts prepared by compliant accountants.

At GCRD we know that there are numerous umbrella companies for recruitment agencies to choose from. We also understand the recruitment industry and the pressures and priorities you face. With the issues to the Bribery Act the burden of proof falls onto the agency to demonstrate that they have taken reasonable steps to prevent any tax loss to HMRC, so being compliant and being able to fully demonstrate your compliance is paramount, we understand we are once who work very closely with the recruitment agency ensure all legal aspects are covered.

Many of our staff are from recruitment backgrounds themselves, we know how much time can be spent dealing with pay queries, paperwork and questions from your workers over rates, expenses and compliance. It can feel like time wasted and we recognise that this can take you away from the tasks you really want to focus on. We aim to save you time so you have more of it to focus on priorities such as bringing on new business and sourcing the perfect candidates.
With all of this in mind we have worked to ensure we offer a range of services to meet the needs of our recruitment agency partners. When you refer your workers to us we will take care of ensuring they are paid on time and meet all their tax and NI obligations. We offer a range of different schemes so whether you are referring low paid workers or independent contractors, on higher rates, who aren’t subject to SDC, then we can support you and them.
