Specialist accountancy and tax services firm planIT have joined the Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s (REC) Business Partnership Scheme.

planIT Services Limited is a firm of Chartered Accountants who offer specialised services to contractors and as part of the partnership with the REC they will be offering REC members free self-assessment tax advice.

REC chief executive Kevin Green said: “We are fully committed to ensuring that the recruitment sector adheres to the highest levels of compliance and I am delighted that, after a lengthy process of due diligence, we are able to welcome planIT to our Business Partner Scheme.”

Adrian Learer, Managing Director of planIT, said: “Recruitment companies and their boards are focused more than ever on achieving the highest levels of compliance. We have built our reputation as a firm businesses can trust having specialised in working with recruitment companies and their associated contractors since 1996.

“One of the main reasons why our customers work with us, and why the REC have invited us to join their scheme, is because we are a firm of chartered accountants and as such have to comply with extra levels of regulation that others within our sector do not.”
