Nation-wide payroll provider, RACS Group, has had good take-up from the industry since it launched its new digital agency portal to help agency owners, directors and consultants both to remain compliant and to manage their relationships with the Group online. All relevant documents, contractor information and assignment schedules are stored securely online to help save agencies valuable time, administrative hassle, and financial expense.
Managing director, Terry Hillier, explains:
“One of the major benefits of our online portal is that it enables agencies to upload detailed lists of their contractors, in real time, which can then be formatted in accordance with HM Revenue & Customs required guidelines.
“Since April this year agencies have had to submit quarterly reports of their contractors, and the portal streamlines and simplifies this mandatory task.”
The portal gives access to a variety of additional resources, including: a range of useful reports and data; list of contractors and associated information; contracts and schedules stored securely online; the ability to download brochures, leaflets and other resources; the facility to order the RACS range of promotional goods, and the means to book meetings or refer a contractor.
“Importantly, our Agency Portal is a totally secure online facility, compliant with data protection law,” concludes Terry. “It is yet another example of how we, as a Group, are assisting agencies meet the demands of legislative change.”
