Employment Intermediary Reporting

In 2015, employment intermediary reports became compulsory for agencies supplying workers and filed on a quarterly basis.

The workers details and payment details are supplied on a simple excel spreadsheet in a format given by HMRC, each quarter, by the 5th of the following month. If no workers were supplied in a particular quarter, a nil report must still be submitted. 

The main reason HMRC brought in this reporting was to satisfy HMRC that PAYE should not have been operated on their payments and to tackle false self-employment.

Failure to submit these reports or submitting an inaccurate report can run into the £1,000's after a third offence so it is paramount that these are submitted with care. 

You will need to sign up to HMRC's unique online service in order to file these reports.

The intermediary report template can be found on our website under Recruitment resources

What are millennials looking for in a role? How does this differ to Generation Z?

What is a millennial? 

Millennials are a group of people who have reached adulthood around 2000. Speaking as one myself, they have high expectations of technology, having always had use of the internet and generically speaking tend to adopt to new technology quickly compared to previous generations. 

According to *Deloitte's 2016 Millennial Survey, in general they express little loyalty to their current employers, and values overtake a need for leadership-skill development.

So what are the millennials looking for in a job role?

  • They choose organisations to work for that share their personal values
  • Flexible working, better work/life balance
  • Have a desire to succeed
  • Prefer a Flat structure over hierarchy

Generation Z (the new kids on the block)

The Generation Z are a group who are not aware of a world outside the internet. Born after 1995, they are used to getting everything instantly but still they're a social group, with their lives played out through social media.

Generation Z Career expectations?

Generally speaking, they want to make their hobby their job, they believe in their own network getting them opportunities over qualifications and like the millennials don't believe in a hierarchy at work. 

The fundamental elements remain the same as the millennials, with values and flexible working remaining high on the list. This doesn't mean however they do not want to be successful.

Have you been asked for a D-U-N-S number?

We were recently approached by one of our recruitment client's, informing us that they had received a request from someone asking if they have a DUNS number. 

Duns & Bradstreet promote that by having a unique 9 digit DUNS number for your business, this could improve your credibility and enable potential customers to get a better picture of risks and opportunities.

You can also use it as a business tool to create reports such as reviewing your competitor's performance, assessing the financial stability of a potential supplier or assessing how much credit to extend to your customers and on what terms. 

You can apply for a DUNS number for free via their website here
