Payment options

Why changes to IR35 rules don’t affect our nurses

At Thornbury Nursing we only operate a Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) payroll which means that we always pay our nurses directly, and tax income at source. As a result, the changes in April 2017 to IR35 rules on Personal Services Companies (PSCs), do not affect our nurses.

IR35 changes have resulted in recruitment agencies (which accept PSCs) having to deduct tax and National Insurance from nurses, who are working via a PSC in the Public Sector. This means there is no advantage to working through a PSC versus PAYE. Remember, there are additional costs associated with running a PSC (PAYE is free), so this way of working could be more costly.

It’s also worth mentioning that we don’t offer our nurses an Umbrella scheme either as these are essentially PAYE schemes that you pay for. You can read more about PAYE Vs Umbrella payment options here.

We strongly believe that we offer the best all-round package, and most importantly, unlike other agencies, we have always paid mileage in full back to our nurses.

If you’re not already registered with us, why not take advantage of the best rates and benefits without having to run your own PSC or operate through an umbrella company?
