6CATS Pro

Introduction

6CATS employs some of the most experienced and knowledgeable individuals in the international contractor management sector. 

Our management team has over 100 years experience, knowledge and expertise in managing the compliance aspects of placing contract workers worldwide.

Our wealth of market intelligence and established international presence has enabled us to build an extensive network of accountants, lawyers and in-country experts to ensure that our compliance knowledge is always up-to-date and we have the ability to be aware of legislation changes and adapt our contractor management solutions to accommodate compliance and legislative requirements.

6CATS is the expert supplier of contractor management solutions to the world’s leading recruitment businesses and we are now delighted to launch our new product, 6CATSPRO

6CATSPRO offers recruitment businesses access to a wide portfolio of compliance consulting products.

Why 6CATSPRO?

6CATSPRO offers recruitment businesses access to a wide portfolio of compliance consulting products and recognises the importance of providing fully compliant, transparent and streamlined solutions. We provide our clients with the highest level of services whilst offering complete compliance assurance. Our services take the stress and uncertainty out of engaging contractor workers around the world, enabling recruitment businesses to focus on their core business.

We recognise that some recruitment businesses prefer to manage some aspects of contractor compliance in-house or need assistance developing compliance processes or need compliance training to be delivered to various functions within their businesses upskilling their own staff.

Working with a broad scope of active clients ranging from PLC’s with multiple International offices and dedicated legal and compliance functions through to smaller more UK centric recruitment businesses moving into the International arena for the 1st time 6CATSPRO tailors its services to deliver a bespoke solution relevant to the needs of each individual client.

In the last few years, we have experienced first-hand how quickly the landscape of International compliance legislation management is changing for the recruitment industry.

There is also now significant additional risk, since the introduction of the Criminal Finances Act (CFA 2017), which holds directors and owners of UK companies criminally liable for failing to prevent tax evasion, anywhere in the world, whether knowingly or not.

We understand it is virtually impossible for recruitment agencies to keep up-to-date with compliance legislation changes in every market they operate in and to ensure compliance is maintained throughout their operations.

International compliance expertise is a niche skill, the option of engaging lawyers and accountants with appropriate knowledge of expat and cross border regulations for advice often results in spiralling costs, and no clear picture of what is actually workable from a commercial compliance perspective. 6CATSPRO are able to offer commercial, practical and industry specific advice and support to the recruitment industry.
