Here at RACS Group we have always traded under the company strapline ‘Compliance without Compromise.' And that's exactly what you'll get by partnering with RACS.
Whether you are a contractor, agency or business looking for a payroll service, RACS offers transparency, simplicity and reliability throughout the whole process.
Our range of services are approved by HM Revenue and Customs and we are members of a number of professional bodies.
If you are looking for a payroll company that you can trust RACS is the right choice.
Working through our umbrella solution is very simple. Once you are registered your agency will send us your pay details each week for processing. Payment is one week in arrears and made to you by 9am each Friday.
RACS will become your employer and you'll have a contract of employment with us which you'll need to agree via your online portal once you have signed up.
Generally, you'll complete your timesheet with the agency although sometimes these are sent direct to us. Your agency will advise their process.
All taxes and national insurance will be deducted automatically and if you are part of the pension scheme this will also be shown as a deduction on your payslip.
When you are paid via an umbrella company your rate of pay would usually be increased by your agency to take account of additional Employer deductions that will show on your payslip. These deductions include Employers National Insurance, Employers Pension contribution and the Apprenticeship Levy.Request a no obligation consultation
The PS Pro model was introduced to protect the commercial interests of all those involved in the supply of temporary labour into organisations such as the NHS, schools, Government departments, the BBC and Channel 4, plus construction companies undertaking projects funded by the public purse.
RACS PS Pro therefore assumes that the vast majority of contractors will fail the online (Employment Status Service) test introduced by HM Revenue & Customs and therefore automatically pay all due taxes and NICs as employment income.
Fully operational, RACS PS Pro is a two man company model (and not a PSC) which falls outside of the Off-payroll legislation as all tax and NICs are deducted at source with any liability remaining with us, the payroll provider.

PAYE is the standard method of payment for employees in the UK. It stands for Pay As You Earn. Being the simplest method of payment, it is often a popular choice for contractors, if available.
When you are paid PAYE the only deductions from your payment will be for tax, National Insurance and Pension (if you are enrolled). No fee, no employer deductions, straightforward and simple.
Not all agencies will be able to offer you PAYE, but it is always worth asking the question.Request a no obligation consultation
Contracting through your own Limited Company is often the most tax efficient payment vehicle available to higher earners. If you fall outside of IR35 and SDC regulations, RACS PSC can be the preferred option to maximise your take-home pay while remaining fully compliant.

RACS PSC will pro-actively monitor and assist your Limited Company with any financial opportunities and offer guidance on legislation and compliance. Whether you currently have an established Limited company or are new to contracting, we can offer a total accounts service.
Underpinned by fully compliant processes, RACS PSC offers the comprehensive support to maximise contractors take home income.Request a no obligation consultation
