There are some 150,000 businesses in the UK where tipping is common, but the practice is far from efficient or transparent. Find out how a tronc scheme can support your business as we answer all tronc FAQs and share how Buzzacott can improve your tipping practices.
A tronc is a special pay arrangement that lets businesses in the hospitality and leisure sector, such as bars, restaurants, hotels or casinos, fairly distribute staff tips, gratuities and service charges given by customers. The word finds its roots in 1920s France where “tronc des pauvres”, or collecting boxes, were used to accept donations for the poor.
At Buzzacott, we support a wide range of businesses in the hospitality sector by acting as their troncmaster, from bars and restaurants to hotels and casinos. Our troncs are completely transparent, conform fully to HMRC requirements, provide an exemption from National Insurance Contributions and offer significant savings to employers and staff. Whether you’re a new or an established business, we can help you set up and implement your bespoke troncmaster scheme.
