In order for the “straight talking” umbrella companies work within guidelines provided by HMRC, the charter will have to be updated from time to time with the appropriate amendments, changes and additions as guidance is issued.
The first addition to the charter was suggested by RACS Group, and has subsequently been added to the original 10 point charter as follows:
Point 11. To pay at least National Minimum Wage (NWM) and expenses reimbursed will not form any part of the NWM calculation.
All members will be expected to adhere to this additional point. Any members found not to be following the guidance will be asked to address this and any comments published on the site.
