Setting up a tronc

When working in the hospitality sector, finding a tipping system that boosts staff morale yet is still fair can be a challenge. Whether you’re a new or an established business, we can help construct and implement a bespoke tronc that is truly ethical and keeps your staff happy.

Is your business ready? The Employment Allocation of Tips Bill goes live in

How can we help?
Remove NI contributions and keep HMRC at bay

Remove National Insurance Contributions and keep HMRC at bay

Having Buzzacott as your independent troncmaster safeguards you from any HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) challenge. Our independent tronc schemes are completely transparent, conform fully to HMRC requirements and the pending Employment (Allocation of Tips) Bill, provide an exemption from National Insurance Contributions and offer significant savings to employers and staff.

Save time and money

Save time and money

Choosing Buzzacott as your external troncmaster relieves your staff of the administrative burden of running the tronc and lets them focus solely on their daily tasks at hand, which as we know can be difficult at the best of times. Many of our clients, from bars and restaurants to hotels and casinos, benefit from having a simplified process in place that saves both their staff and business money.



An independent troncmaster ensures the tronc is not influenced by employers, nor by bias or favouritism, and represents what’s in the best interest of all employees. Sharing tips, gratuities and service charges fairly makes staff feel valued and improves morale across the business, often leading to increased staff retention and a better service provided to customers. With pending legislation on the horizon, this is now more important than ever, as the Employment (Allocation of Tips) Bill focuses on the fairness and transparency of tip allocations.

Improve staff retention

Improve staff retention

We understand the struggles that many businesses go through with recruiting and retaining staff, and the labour shortage in the hospitality industry only amplifies the matter. Our independent troncs are bespoke and tailored to assist you in recruiting, retaining and incentivising employees, giving you one less thing to worry about.

What our clients say

What our clients say

Buzzacott has been efficient and proactive, particularly in meeting deadlines, and their added value support on implementing tronc was phenomenal. They have just the right balance being flexible, easy to deal with yet having all the key strengths, attributes and rigour necessary to support our restaurant. I am particularly indebted to Samantha Newton and Mark Taylor who were committed to and successfully executed the challenge of implementing tronc in under four weeks from the appointment, a tremendous achievement. I look forward to many more years working with Buzzacott.
