Modern Slavery Statement

Our business, Hayachi Services LTD is committed to combatting slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement relates to the financial year ending 31/10/2019

As our business has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement. However:

  1. We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation;
  2. We understand that customers with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation.

To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain and we confirm the following:

  1. We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been committed.
  2. We have made enquiries of businesses that supply directly to us and we are confident that no relevant offence is committed in that business.
  3. Insofar as it was reasonably practicable, we have examined our supply chains and confirm that we found no evidence of slavery or human trafficking.

Further details about our business and supply chain are provided below.

Our business is an IT Consultancy primarily to the Legal Sector, which provides Consultancy services, sells software and implements technology solutions for our clients.

Our business structure is fairly simple as we are a Microbusiness:

  • We have one employee in London, and seek out consultants to work with as sub-contractors from time to time
  • All staff currently report directly to our sole Director

We operate in the following countries:

  • UNITED KINGDOM

Our supply chain is as follows:

We understand that certain industry sectors and geographical regions entail greater risk of exploitation than others. We do believe that our supply chain is in one of those sectors.

Where it is reasonably practicable, we ensure that businesses in our supply chain have made a similar statement relating to slavery and human trafficking.
