Controlling Persons

29 May 2012

In the Budget it was proposed that all "controlling persons" must be on the payroll of that organisation by law.

This was recently referred to by the Treasury in their statement regarding the high number of senior Government/Council officials who are not on the Government payroll but are paid either through personal service companies (PSC's) or intermediaries such as Umbrella Companies.

The full statement is available at:

In the report it states that 2,400 of off payroll arrangements had been identified in Government Departments.
