Joint statement on Surrey Pay reward review

Surrey County Council, GMB and Unison have published a joint statement providing an update on the pay and review reward for school staff on Surrey Pay. As part of this it is confirmed that the trade unions have submitted a pay claim on behalf of their members for the 1st April 2017 pay review (no further details are available at present). There will be a further statement in April explaining the pay review process.


Changes to Off-Payroll Working Rules in the Public Sector ('IR35')

There are changes to the rules regarding the tax and NIC liabilities for freelance workers who provide their services through an intermediary (e.g. a personal service company) from 6th April 2017 affecting 'public authorities', including maintained schools, PRUs and academies. Where the worker would be deemed to be 'employed' were it not for the existence of the intermediary, the public authority will be liable for tax and NICs.

See our guidance for Surrey maintained schools

Guidance for our other HR customers is available on the new website (you will need to register if you have not already done so).

17-02-17  Gender Pay Gap Reporting and the Apprenticeship Levy and Targets - Guidance 

Two of the most significant changes coming into force from April 2017 will be the introduction of the apprenticeship levy, apprenticeship targets for the public sector and gender pay gap reporting. The impact on schools, colleges and trusts of all three of these developments varies according to size and status - and each of these three changes will affect education establishments differently. Some establishments will not be affected at all, others will have to grapple with new reporting requirements and (in the case of the levy) additional costs. Our apprenticeship guidance has been updated to reflect further information known about the levy and also to include information about the public sector apprenticeship targets.

We have also developed new gender pay gap reporting guidance to support those limited establishments and multi-academy trusts employing at least 250 staff which will have to commence reporting in the 12 month period following the snapshot date of 31st March.

If you are not yet logged in you will need to do so before you can access these guidance documents.
