PayStream news

In the December newsletter we mentioned that we were in the process of collating the results of our contractor insights survey. We can now confirm that the responses have been analysed and we'd once again like to thank everyone who took part.

We were pleased to see a good element of optimism in the industry with the survey revealing that 65% of you predict that you'll find it easy to secure that next contract and 68% expect pay rates to increase. More snapshots of the key headlines will be shared on our social media channels over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for that.

Back to this month's newsletter and we cover off the new HMRC rules which will see agencies supplying information to HMRC on workers they place with clients that are not on agency payroll. We also provide an update on IR35 along with any payroll changes ahead of the new tax year and finally we provide you with hints and tips on how you can prepare for the 2015/16 tax year.
