Challenges that education workers now face

The recent reforms to the Intermediaries Legislation (IR35) have been as well received as a detention on a Friday afternoon for public-sector contractors, particularly those working within education.

The administrative burden of operating inside IR35 via a limited company coupled with a much lower take-home pay means that this way of being paid is no longer attractive to education workers.

Plus is the perfect answer.

How can Plus help?

Plus is the competitively-priced Umbrella service preferred by both education Contractors and Agencies. Plus delivers everything expected of an Umbrella at a fraction of the cost.

For many education contractors, a limited company is no longer beneficial and end clients are now taking a ‘no limited company’ stance. If this is the case, then Plus is the solution for you.

The Plus Benefits

You are fully employed on a contract of employment, which provides continuity and stability through any series of assignments as well as full employment rights and dedicated HR support. All income is paid as employment income and PAYE and NICs are deducted at source.

Online portals and a sophisticated suite of processing technologies ensure contractors and agencies can easily submit timesheet data with invoicing and payroll processed daily.

Automation and an international infrastructure deliver all this at a fraction of the cost of a traditional Umbrella.

Plus provides more

For just £15.00 per week, Plus enables you to provide professional services as an independent contractor to the education sector, without having to worry about your employment status or taxes.

Our sophisticated payroll system ensures that you remain fully compliant with the new legislation while also enjoying optimum take-home pay with full employee rights.
