New legislation from HMRC, which came into force on the 1st April 2017, affects how the NHS Ambulance Trusts, and indeed all of the Public Sector, engages with freelance contractors.
Happily, any instructor working in an Ambulance Trust or other public sector entity via EMSTAR will remain unaffected.
We are able to support those instructors who have pre-existing arrangements to work directly with Public Sector entities.
To avoid having to change your tax status, all you need do is agree with the organisation in question that they engage your services through EMSTAR, rather than directly. This is a process we have already undertaken with several of our instructors.
For more information on these changes and what EMSTAR can do to mitigate the impact of them on your working life, call 0208 522 1853 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
EMSTAR is delighted to announce that in addition to our North Weald venue, we can now offer Ambulance Driver Training courses running out of Bristol. This is the next step in being able to offer these courses throughout the UK.
From this venue, we will be running Level 3 Certificate in Emergency Response Ambulance Driving (FutureQuals) courses on a regular basis.
If you, or anyone you know, is interested in attaining this qualification (which is vital to achieving work as an emergency responder) please contact the office today
