Why RACS?

Choices, choices, so many payroll companies in the market, but who do you choose?

The past few years have seen the spotlight firmly trained on the payroll sector. Expenses went, IR35 shook things up, the Criminal Finances Act made people sit up and listen.

But how do you stay abreast of everything while trying to focus on the things that make you profitable? It is a minefield.

RACS Group have always traded under the company strapline ‘Compliance without Compromise.’ And that’s exactly what you’ll get by partnering with RACS.

With extensive recruitment experience at both operational and strategic level, speaking to RACS is a good starting point. We understand recruitment and have the people and resources to truly look after your contractors, letting you focus on filling the next role.

Having RACS as your partner gives you peace of mind.

Compliance without Compromise

This has been our company strapline since the beginning. Because we know that above all else, our partners, whether they be agencies or individual contractors, need to have complete faith and trust in us.

While partnering with RACS, you can mitigate risk and be assured that HMRC compliance is taken care of. We use a PAYE payment system that guarantees 100% compliance. We also take on all employment responsibilities, so in the unlikely event that anything goes wrong, the buck stops with us.

We will ensure that all of your contractors meet their obligations for tax and National Insurance by making these deductions at source and relaying to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) via their RTI (Real Time Information) system.

Leading the field in compliance for the last ten years

Our in-house legal and compliance team engage leading experts to ensure our employment and payroll solutions are compliant with all legislation such as IR35 and Off-payroll.

Right to Work
We have a team dedicated to ensuring all new registrations have the correct right to work documentation. Where the correct documentation is not in place we will seek permission to carry out the necessary Home Office checks before allowing the worker to be paid.

The Criminal Finances Act
The Criminal Finances Act makes recruiters criminally responsible for the prevention of the facilitation of tax evasion. Agencies with RACS Group can be assured there will be no tax evasion with us in the supply chain as we deduct all tax and National Insurance at source.

RACS Collective+ Enhanced

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.

RACS PSPro Professional

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.

For further details about the PS Pro credentials get in touch today.

PAYE Standard

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.
