Direct Engagement

Operating a non-contentious direct engagement model we offer complete peace of mind to clients as we connect them directly with their locum workforce. We never use an intermediary employer or umbrella company, and do not operate ‘in the grey’.

Our clear contracting arrangements and market leading software provide you with:

ü  Absolute certainty and security over the employment relationship you have with your temporary staff

ü  Confidence that the correct VAT treatment is applied and reported savings are valid

ü  Evidence that all appropriate employment taxes and NIC’s have been deducted in accordance with IR35 regulations

ü  Full visibility and control over pay and commission

ü  An auditable process with appropriate spend approvals and governance embedded throughout

Direct Engagement is not treated as an isolated process of saving by Retinue, but one peripheral, albeit significant, benefit of a wider set of gains. Our solutions facilitate genuine transformation within agency spend by providing:

ü  Full visibility of spend and its component parts

ü  Control over the cascade of bookings to bank and regional bank before agency; this integration of the three tiers within a single platform is integral to the success of banks and regional banks

ü  Tiered agency supply to support high fill rates and best value rates

ü  A powerful customisable workflow within the software, making rate control, worker compliance, time sheeting, payroll and invoicing easy.

ü  A full set of management information can be exported at the touch of a button, allowing stakeholders to see cost against budget, benchmarking information on pay and agency rates and both secured opportunities and lost opportunities to fill bookings with the optimum cost resource.

Crucial to the success of our Direct Engagement module is:

ü  No reliance on medical services VAT exemptions or any umbrella or limited company providing medical services

ü  A simple, transparent and compliant model aligned with NHS bank staff employment contracts and payments

ü  Weekly worker deductions calculated, ensuring IR35 and Criminal Finance Act 2017 compliance

ü  Elect in or out sourcing of payroll for second generation savings and flexibility

ü  Query resolution support for agencies and temporary staff to remove Trust administration burden

ü  A dedicated finance administration team to ensure payments processes are seamless

ü  Incentives and smart processes to ensure volumes and therefore savings are maximised

ü  Resourcing audit teams to manage compliance risk
