TCP are a Professional Employer Organisation, working with recruiters and end user companies to ensure their contract workforce are engaged via a compliant payroll vehicle.
If as a recruitment agency you are placing temporary/contract workers then you are no doubt aware of the risks involved. TCP can help manage this by offering compliant solutions to the problems that can arise with any placement. By using our local knowledge we can ensure you, your client and the candidate are all protected. Another common problem when placing contract workers is the speed in which they are paid, nobody wants to wait very long for their wages. Should we be employing your candidate, TCP have the ability to fund the payroll whereby we have them paid in full within 5 working days of receipt of their approved timesheet – we do not need to wait for the funds from the agency first. Our expertise means that while you focus on finding the best candidates/clients, TCP will take care of payroll administration, payments and general back office compliance – indemnifying you as our client in the process.
As a professional employment agency, we keep up to date with the rapid changes in laws and regulations, and we identify and implement these changes ensuring compliance. In certain countries, it is only legal to lend labour if there is a labour leasing license in the recruitment chain . TCP operate and have licences in the following countries: Germany (AUG licence), Switzerland (SECO license), Ireland (Employment Agency License), Belgium (Interim License).
With locally registered entities in all of the locations where TCP operate, TCP employ and manage the payroll according to local legislation. Some countries only allow invoicing between companies if they are locally registered. As an example, a U.K based agency can only arrange commercial employment placements in Switzerland by first obtaining a local Swiss SECO license. TCP has the SECO license and can invoice a Swiss company, therefore agencies can use us to invoice their clients for permanent or contract roles.
We have spent years dealing not just with contractors but also with agencies and we understand how complex it can be to manage contractors from varying industries, sectors, countries and backgrounds. When an agency works with us they will benefit from all the back office staff and support of TCP, all of whom are there to assist the contractors in any way they need. This can be related to employment issues, taxation, payroll, expenses or breaches of contract. Either way TCP will handle it, so the agency are free to concentrate on their work.
