Experts to answer logistics industry compliance concerns with free webinar

With Employment Status continuing to be an area of scrutiny for government, industry and tribunals and in particular the last-mile delivery sector, business owners have never been under more pressure to make sure that their companies are fully compliant.

Now, leading self-employment technology specialist, Wise is reaching out with support for delivery firms by broadcasting a free expert webinar on Monday 25th April hosted by its Tax Director, Jeremy Leach. With over 40 years’ experience in tax and specifically compliance, including a 15-year stint at HMRC and senior positions in specialist Tax and Insurance businesses, Jeremy has an impressive wealth of knowledge and experience to answer all manner of compliance questions from business owners.

Currently, a few key areas such as contracts and employment status are causing stress across the logistics industry as business owners look to provide positive experiences for their subcontractors whilst avoiding costly fines from HMRC. This webinar will provide lots of information on how to deal with self-employed subcontractors including contracts, working conditions and even preparing for potential audits.

Through its revolutionary onboarding platform Wise currently supports over 250 delivery firms on everything from compliance to driver communication, with over 50,000 self-employed subcontractors having used its mobile app.
