I have a client who employs around 50 staff.
They are considering setting up a new company purely to employ the staff (who will leave the existing company and start a new employment with the new one).
The new company will then charge the the existing company for the staff costs plus a modest mark up.
I am aware that employees rights will transfer into the new company.
Can you tell me (1) whether this is a viable thing to do and (2) what pitfalls to be aware off.
Many thanks for your help.
