Read. Review. Recruit. – Summer/Autumn 2017 Edition

Summer 2017 Recruitment Newsletter

Welcome to our recruitment newsletter, bringing you all of the latest recruitment news.

We are now half way through the year and what a year it has been. The election, which was initially thought to be a forgone conclusion, has raised more questions than answers.
Although finally, we do have an update on Making Tax Digital (MTD). HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has announced that the scheme, due to go live from April 2018, will be delayed.
From 2019 only businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold will have to keep digital records and only for VAT purposes. All other businesses will not be asked to keep digital records or update HMRC quarterly until at least 2020. This does give some breathing space for agencies. If you do have any questions concerning MTD, we are here to help.

Moving away from MTD, earlier this year we sponsored APSCo’s SME Forum. At the event, Lee Manning gave a brilliant presentation on Enterprise Management Incentives (EMIs) and how those in the recruitment sector are using them to recruit and retain employees. With many agencies asking us how they can implement EMIs into their agency, our special feature this quarter looks at EMIs – the benefits, conditions and how it works.

We would also like to thank Mark Lennard from 8LEGS Technology who has contributed to our client story. Check out page 6 to learn about this fantastic new lead generation tool for the recruitment industry.

We pride ourselves on bringing you the latest recruitment news and hope you find this edition useful, as always if you would like to submit an article to feature in our next, please get in touch.
