Operation Compliance - Alan Nolan's Key Note Speech

29 January 2020

Alan Nolan has released the content of his keynote speech entitled “Avoiding the Inevitable” which will contain a “no holds barred” assessment of enquiries into labour supply arrangements currently being conducted by HMRC’s Fraud Investigation Service.

He will make reference to following;

  • HM Revenue and Customs Investigations – the psychology of persuasion
  • Review, Independent review and litigation – including the appeal process and new expedited tribunal hearings
  • What is Fraud and the standard of proof required in labour supply arrangements?
  • First Choice Recruitment v HMRC – HMRC’s staggeringly bad conduct in pursuing a case of fraud.
  • Top 10 success stories from 2019 – Aspire case studies
  • Supply Chain Management – Due diligence, code of conduct and beyond

We will be joined by the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate (EAS), a government body who regulate employment agencies and employment businesses to ensure compliance with the Conduct Regulations and to ensure a level playing field for those operating in the sector.

Our guest speakers will discuss the requirements of the Conduct Regulations and provide insight into the new Regulation 13a which becomes a legal requirement from April 2020. They will also provide insight into EAS inspections, the commonly found breaches of the Regulations and how to avoid them. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions during their Q&A.
