Additional anecdotal responses when asked if the issue of possible additional costs had been raised with the business

Communication has been issued to the business regarding the changes with further guidance due to be issued early next year. Additional cost i.e. NI but we will not require additional resources. If anything this has reduced costs as it has made how much we were spending on contractors highly visible and thus we are reducing the numbers. Most of the OPW are paid amounts lower than the NI thresholds.

We are aiming to reduce the number of contractors. A training session is planned across the business. Awaiting manager......could be a long wait.

Finance are aware of payroll's input. It is being looked into at present. Still at the data gathering stage. A communication to the directors to make them aware of the potential impact and costs. Not sure as HR is dealing with this. We briefed in August so they could plan
