A letter came in the post this morning:

Dear Sirs,


As fellow members of the FSB, I wanted to let you know about a very well kept secret that enables you to get high calibre staff at extraordinarily low rates - impossibly low you might think.

How would you like to employ people with:
  • No National Minimum Wage
  • No PAYE tax
  • No employers NI
  • No contract of employment
  • No holiday pay
  • No sick pay

There is a special, but little known dispensation written in to EC and UK law. This allows certain people to work in the uk without their employer having to comply with many aspects of the usual raft of employment legislation and regulations.

Many people who are in university courses all over Europe are eligible for this dispensation. The need to carry out work assignments as part of their training. This enables you to employ high calibre workers for just £7000 per annum - all in.

It's something that large blue chip employers have been benefiting from for decades.

Yours Sincerely

Peter Harrison
Managing Director
