You simply need to register with LSP Renewables. Once on our system our specialist consultants will keep you abreast of the latest jobs as they come in ensuring you are kept in the loop of all the latest renewable energy vacancies.
Whether you are looking to work in offshore wind, onshore wind, solar or any other renewable energy markets LSP have the knowledge to find you the right role.
Our dedicated Compliance department work closely with all our contractors providing support and advise throughout the process. Prior to starting your contract LSP will require the following information:
- A clear copy of your Passport (Please note that by providing this, you consent to LSP conducting an ID Check via a trusted partner.)
If operating through a limited company, these further documents will be required:
- Certificate of Company Incorporation
- VAT Registration Certificate (if relevant)
- Bank Details (please note that we will require these on an official document which also shows your company name. This can be a screenshot or picture of the relevant part of your bank statement, for example.)
- Insurance Certificates
- A1 Certificate (if applicable)
- Any relevant certifications and/or qualifications
As a work-seeker, you can choose three different ways of working with LSP when providing your services in the UK. There are different reasons why you might choose one way of working over another – each contract type varies in terms of what pay rate you will receive and what benefits (if any) you are entitled to. Ultimately, it is up to each work-seeker to determine which way of working suits you best as LSP cannot advise you on which option you should choose.
In simple terms, LSP engage temporary workers providing their services in the UK under one of the following three models:
1. PAYE (PAY AS YOU EARN)
A PAYE worker is an individual engaged on a contract for services (not a contract of service i.e., employment contract) to work temporarily via LSP for an end client. This category of worker is generally identified as an “agency worker” and is within scope of AWR. LSP deducts PAYE tax and NI insurance at source and pays the temporary worker a net sum.
2. UMBRELLA COMPANY
An Umbrella Company is a UK company that employs workers on an over-arching contract of employment and provides these workers to LSP and LSP in turn provide the workers to LSP’s end client. The worker in this scenario is also classified as an “agency worker” for the purposes of AWR. LSP pays the approved Umbrella Company gross for the hours worked by the worker, and the Umbrella Company makes all relevant tax and employment deductions before paying the worker a net sum. You can view the list of preferred umbrella suppliers to LSP here.
3. PERSONAL SERVICE COMPANY (PSC)
A personal service company is a UK Limited Company that is owned and managed by the individual providing the services to the end client. LSP pays the PSC a gross sum. Typically, the contractor (who will be the director/shareholder) will be paid by the Limited Company either by way of wages (subject to employment taxes) and/or by way of dividends (subject to corporation tax).
You can find out more by reading the example PAYE and Limited Company contracts below:
**These contracts are general terms of business, the specific details relating to actual assignments would be confirmed when an assignment is offered
LSP Renewables have a dedicated mobilisation team, we work closely with our travel industry partners to ensure we can provide (if required) the most flexible and most competitive travel fares.
We can assist with:
- train travel
- boat travel
- car hire
Should you be mobilising to another country LSP will guide you through the process and introduce you to our in country partners to help apply for work permits and/or visas to ensure there are no nasty surprises when you arrive at your destination and you can get on with the job at hand.
LSP operate an online timesheet portal enabling you to log your hours from a device or computer and without the need for paper timesheets. This efficient solution means you can submit hours and expenses and receive digital approval from your manager. At the beginning of your contract you will receive your personal login details to the portal.
For access to the portal, please click here.
For help using the portal, please use our InTime Contractor User Guide
If you still require assistance, you can contact our Finance department on firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to wide non-compliance with the IR35 rules, the government introduced reforms in the public sector in April 2017 – these are known as the “off-payroll rules”. The Chancellor announced in the Budget on the 29th October 2018 that the government would also reform the off-payroll working rules in the private sector, the implementation took place from 6th April 2021. From this date, the liability for assessing IR35 status is no longer on the contractor’s intermediary but on the client.
When does IR35 apply?
IR35 applies where the worker operates through a UK Limited company. If you engage and supply contrators who work via an intermediary (typically a PSC), where taxes and NICs are not deducted at source, then you are likely to be affected.
How is the employment of the worker assessed?
HMRC provides an employment status tool (CEST) to find out if you, or a worker on a specific engagement should be classed as employed or self-employed for tax purposes.
When a client releases a role in the UK the job role will be assessed to give an initial 'Inside or Outside' determination. Usually once a contractor is identified to carry out the role then a further assessment is completed by the limited company provider to confirm this status determination (SDS)
Access our IR35 Guide here to find out how this will impact you.
The engagement of a contractor in this way should be treated as a business-to-business relationship. This relationship is between LSP Renewables and the limited company providing the services (ie the PSC)
- Ideally instead of providing LSP with your CV, a copy of your businesses profile and qualifications of any contractors that will be provided by the business (i.e., the PSC) should be provided.
- Ideally your business should have a dedicated email address ie email@example.com as opposed to a generic email.
- The right to substiution will usually apply - this means that another representative acting on behalf of your business (PSC) can cover the scope of works the limited company has been contracted to carry out.
This legislation incorporates a revision into the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations, or ‘Conduct Regulations.’
The purpose of the implementation of Key Information Documents was to increase pay transparency for agency workers and provide key information regarding their assignments. You can view an example of the KID with the various different pay models here.
LSP Renewables Ltd (“LSP”) will be compliant with the provisions of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC) with respect to recruiting and placement of seafarers as detailed in Article 1.4 of the convention and as required under United Kingdom Legislation.
