IT Contractors and Intra-company transfers

IT Contractors and Intra-company transfers

The controversial subject of intra-company transfers was raised again this week by The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC). It has continued it’s campaign for a ‘level playing field’ for UK contractors and freelancers since the issue was first reported by the PCG last year.

Several leading contractor accountants have already voiced their disapproval at the use of ICTs, which involve the transfer of an overseas employee to this country at the expense of UK workers. According to the REC, more robust regulation of ICTs is needed to protect UK based contractors and freelancers who may have been either overlooked or worst still replaced for a contract role as a result of an ICT arrangement.

During it’s presentation on Employing and Vetting non-UK Nationals, the REC raised several issues with Tory minister Damian Green, with particular reference to the higher end interim recruitment market that often associated with IT contractors.

The REC’s external relations director, Tom Hadley, welcomed Damian Green’s assertion that the existing regulations governing the use of ICTs will be reviewed under a Tory government to safeguard the future of the interim worker in this country.
