Hiring direct Ltd. Company Contractors - 26 key tasks from just ten pounds a day!


Contractor registration is comprehensive to ensure compliance with numerous rules, notably HMRC IR35 and the new False Self-Employment Regulations in the 2014 Finance Act. Our IR35 "friendly" contract has been tested and proven robust, giving reassurance to both contractors and clients. This trusted solution safeguards the "independent" status of the contractor and reduces the mutual risks of contracting direct (refer Contractors & IR35 in "career advice & links").
