Enhanced Driver Module is based on a Fee Payer model where HGV Driver Payment Solutions Ltd enters the labour chain. We will work closely with agencies and hirers to provide a legal and compliant workforce. The model ensures that each Driver would reach our Enhanced Driver Status – which means that the hirer can be confident that the worker that delivers the services, have registered onto the Hub app for Compliance monitoring purposes.
By entering the contractual chain, the fee-paying business can determine whether the Contractor is compliantly operating in or outside of IR35.
If the determination is that the enhanced Driver is deemed to be within IR35 ie not compliant within the enhanced driver model then they will be paid net as of payroll taxes. As most enhanced drivers will be deemed outside of IR35, they will receive their gross payment minus £10 +Vat which gives them access to the app and compliancy features.

Together with the Enhanced Driver Model and the HGV Driver Hub app the end hirer is assured that due diligence has been taken to determine the IR35 status of a Limited Company Driver and can deliver a SDS safe in the knowledge that all care and steps have been taken to ensure the following:
There is no mutuality of obligations between Driver and Hirer
The driver incurs costs before the assignment that are not directly recovered from the Hirer eg PLI, Safety-wear, Boots, CPC training, Digi cards and office costs to name but a few
The driver has considerable risks in not getting paid for work completed if not “up to scratch”
Under standard REC Terms (contract 4b) substitution is permitted by the Hirer
A B2B contract is formed between the Driver and the Hirer
