How can we help?

Imperfect Circle provides commercial and other professional advisory services to businesses operating in the recruitment and HR services sectors. We help clients identify and secure new opportunities for growth; develop products and services for specific markets; and identify and manage operational or commercial risks.

We can help small or medium-sized recruitment businesses develop mature service offerings such as MSP, RPO or SOW engagement and deployment. We can also provide support to large, established businesses in identifying new routes to market for their core and complementary service offerings.

Off-Payroll Rules (IR35 Reform)

We offer specialist advisory services to recruiters or end-hirers looking to understand the potential impact and risks associated with the proposed extension of the off-payroll rules into the private sector, recently delayed to April 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our advice takes into account the risks associated with alternative engagement models and stresses the importance of effective supply chain due diligence for any form of intermediary engagement. We are also able to advise on the potential impact that the draft 'Chapter 10' changes will have on public contracting authorities - whose processes and procedures under the 2017 reforms may not be adequate to protect them from liability under the new regime.
