- Both parties trading via 6prog pay a service fee
6prog operates as a connector and ‘paperwork’ enabler so operates more as a SAAS provider than a recruiter. It charges all users the same SAAS fee (3%) based on usage of the platform. I find it hard to correlate the notion of employment with the choice to trade via a platform.
We will have to see what HMRC thinks about this in due course. However, I’m certain this is a better setup than being a link in an RPO chain where the freelancer has no control over their engagement with the end client and the RPO holds the cards.
