What is the ‘Tronc scheme’?

The Tronc scheme is used by hospitality and leisure businesses to distribute any gratuities and tips given to employees from customers. The use of ‘troncs’ enables employees to take home more money as they can avoid paying contributions and taxes (particularly National Insurance Contributions). It is advised that specialist advice is sought when dealing with tronc schemes as the rules are often complicated and constantly changing. Businesses and employees alike require safeguarding against the demands of HMRC to avoid large tax bills and lengthy Employment Tribunals. We can offer you advice to make sure that you are legally compliant and up-to-date on the latest information.
