You’re an expert in your field.
You’ve developed your skills so that you offer real value.

The truth is that the business of contracting is different and not everyone gets it.

We’re experts in working with contractors, carrying out bookkeeping, running payroll , advising on tax-efficiency and submitting returns.

So why not pass the job over to us?

IR35 changes the game

Every limited company in the UK has to produce a set of annual accounts and lodge these at Companies House and with HMRC. These are produced to a set standard and are called the ‘statutory accounts’ of the company. Now here’s the thing, although they are ‘standard’ the standard is different depending upon the type of company that produces them

IR35 changes the game

With the extension of IR35, the landscape is about to change again and so you need to partner with a company that can help you efficiently work your way through the regulations.
IR35 will radically alter the way that many contractors and the companies that they supply have to assess tax status.
We have already seen the effect that this has had with our public sector contractor clients and as the regulations are extended into the private sector we’ll see the marketplace alter radically.
Companies will be required to assess your status as inside or outside IR35 and that will change the tax-efficiency of your working arrangements. It is also fair to say that many companies don’t understand IR35 at all and so you may even get a determination that is substantially wrong. And we expect that many of our contractor clients may find that they move in and out of IR35 and PAYE type contracts depending upon the situation. Because we are contractor specialists we can cope with all of these situations in the most cost-effective way and give you the peace of mind you are looking for.

Get things right from the start

The place to start is to get your bookkeeping up to date.
We offer a cost-effective bookkeeping service that is designed to take the chore away from our contractor clients.This provides you with the foundation for your annual accounts for submission to Companies House which again we are happy to produce and submit on your behalf.

l also produce your corporation tax calculations, making full use of any reliefs and allowances to make sure you pay only the tax that is due.

If you pay yourself using a mixture of dividends and PAYE we can advise on the best level of payments for you, run your payroll and submit your RTI returns and produce dividend vouchers.

In short, we provide a complete end-to-end contractor service.

Don’t chance it - use the best

We’ve seen many bold claims by umbrella companies and others who offer an unlikely level of tax savings that simply aren’t sustainable.

he problem is that even if you take advice from one of these companies and submit your tax returns in good faith, you will still be liable to interest and penalties if it turns out that the scheme is against the rules.

The simple message is that if something looks too good to be true then it probably is.

With our contractor service, you won’t need to worry.
Our qualified tax professionals will make sure that all of your arrangements are completely allowable and that you will be protected against investigations.

Contractors FAQ’S

What Is a Contractor?

A contractor is a self-employed individual or business hired by clients to complete specific projects or tasks within a defined timeframe.

How Do Contractors Differ from Employees?

Contractors work independently, set their own schedules, and are responsible for their taxes and benefits, whereas employees work for a company, follow set schedules, and receive benefits.

What Are the Advantages of Hiring Contractors?

Hiring contractors can be cost-effective, as clients don't need to provide benefits or office space. Contractors often have specialized skills for specific projects.

What Legal and Tax Obligations Do Contractors Have?

Contractors must handle their own taxes, including income tax and self-employment tax. They should also be aware of legal contracts, insurance, and compliance with local regulations.

Can Contractors Form Their Own Businesses?

Yes, many contractors choose to establish their own businesses, such as limited companies or sole proprietorships, to provide their services.
