The biggest questions about troncs answered by our Troncmaster Team

Troncs have been around for a while, but hospitality businesses are becoming increasingly aware of them as a way of reducing the cost of processing pooled tips and ensuring employees receive their allocation of tips in a fair way that maximises the amount they receive.

Troncs are simple in principle, but the nuances of how they are set up, implemented and managed are far from simple. When we are contacted by employers looking to set up a tronc or review a tronc they have in place, it is evident that there are common misconceptions and errors across the industry.

Our team of Troncmasters have put together the ultimate troncs Q & A based on the questions and common themes they come across when talking to businesses about troncs.

Whether you are running your tronc internally or using an independent tronc service, such as Troncmasters, we wanted to cover all the essential questions, so you can feel confident about the process, stay out of trouble with HMRC, and fulfil your duty of care to staff.
