Last year's budget brought with it news that more change was ahead for the contracting sector when it was announced that the Government is due to begin a consultation on whether to extend the off-payroll rules into the Private Sector. Given this, in this month's edition we look at the changes over the last couple of years and whether such changes have had their desired effect.

We also look at HMRCs increased activity in identifying non-compliant providers, along with our advice on how to ensure your agency doesn't get caught out in working with one. Also if GDPR isn't yet on your agency's radar yet then it should be - so we also share with you the top 10 things a recruitment business needs to know about GDPR.

And finally, we have some great news! For the second year in a row we have been voted the Best Umbrella Company of 2017 and also the Runner Up for Best Contractor Accountant (Large) of 2017. This is the fourth time we've won the Best Umbrella Company award and the sixth time we've been voted runner up in the Best contractor Accountant category. Given that these awards are voted for by contractors the win feels even more special, as it proves once again how much our customers value the great customer service we deliver.
