Why The Guild?
Established in 1997, The Guild has a strong background in status compliance and effectively stands between clients and HMRC.
Our in-house legal, tax and compliance teams can ensure that all CIS tax and employment status issues are dealt with in the most compliant way possible and help remove the commercial risks associated with engaging self-employed contractors.
Ultimately, we are able to guarantee the status of freelance operatives, thereby allowing businesses the freedom to operate safely with a self-employed workforce.
We assist you in negotiating the tax and legal maze surrounding sub-contracting in Construction.
Once on board with The Guild, clients benefit from access to a wide variety of expertise and knowledge that assists them to run their businesses more efficiently. The Guild even runs educational seminars which are free to clients.
Benefits of The Guild
Who we work with
We are, and always have been, driven by the needs of our clients.
We maintain a broad range of clients, from the smallest family-run operations to PLCs.
Our Clients emanate from a range of disciplines covered by the Construction Industry Scheme (“CIS”) – such as brickwork, plant hire and tunnelling. We work with labour agencies provided that no conflicts are caused with our contractors’ client base.
With a strong trading history, we are able to be flexible with the specific requirements of each client. At the same time, our team members enjoy close relationships with our clients and the type of trust that comes with a longstanding, quality service.
In addition to serving our clients, we also help them to meet the demands of those above them in the contractual chain. This has led us to experience Crossrail and ODA audits (to name just two examples), and in turn to the acquisition of knowledge that sets us apart from our competitors.
