Toast #001 – a Breakfast Briefing for Resource and Finance Teams
Spreading knowledge in the morning.
This month, we had a great turnout for the first in a series of breakfast briefings – Toast #001. This informative Breakfast Briefing was specifically for Resource Managers and Finance Teams to bring them up to speed and get them fully prepared for the upcoming changes to the IR35 reforms in April 2020.
After coffee and some networking, the attendees also heard from JoP, Resource Management Consultant and Trainer, about how to protect your people, projects and profits with some simple but effective resource management tips.
Everyone left feeling much more informed and keen to join our next Toast event. Toast #002 will take place in February 2020. Watch out for details.

Increasingly for hiring managers, a person’s attitude, natural abilities and personal qualities are more important than what degree they have, where they got it and whose in-house training scheme they’ve been on.

What does this mean?
IR35 is a piece of tax legislation. It’s there to stop people enjoying the tax benefits that go with the risk and expense of being self-employed when the terms of their contracts are similar to those of payrolled employees…
