Thinking of contracting…but don’t know where to start?
Let us guide you through the options. No obligation. If you choose us, we can set things up quickly.
We’ll support you, make things easy for you & minimise your tax.
Before you start – expert, friendly guidance on your options
No obligation friendly advice on options
We know that many new contractors wish to get moving with their new contract or even consider whether the contract route is the best way forward for them and if so what are the options. They want honest, trusted and clear advice from a friendly expert and without the accounting geek-speak. We take the time to speak for as long as you need and at no cost or obligation to discuss some of the key issues, options relevant to your specific circumstances and arm you with the knowledge to enable you to decide what is right for you.
We’ll cover all the issues from whether a Limited Company, Sole Trader or even Umbrella company route might best suit you – or even helping you decide whether going or remaining permanent may be worth considering. We will speak with you about dealing with your agency or client to get the best outcome for you in terms of rate and contract. We will also review whether your contract is structured in the best way with respect to the IR35 Tax legislation – don’t worry we’ll explain what that is! We will discuss detail including Business/Limited Company name, set up timescales to the various steps involved and which are more urgent before you can start working and getting paid.
Free Limited Company Set Up
Let us make things simple for you… If you do choose to use us, we will get things moving fast to enable you to start working without the administrative hassle. We set up your company, undertake the relevant registrations and help get your bank account set up. We’ll advise on all the actions required so that you can get billing as soon as possible.
For all new contractors that join us who require a Limited Company, we also offer Free Limited Company Set Up
(Usual Cost £50 +vat).

Once we’ve helped get you going and set up your company or business, we’ll be with you every step of the way. With clear advice on actions required from you in managing your affairs from billings, admin, VAT, year end actions and other key deadlines to what expenses you can and should be claiming to try and reduce your tax bill. We do this proactively and don’t just merely process your numbers. We see it as working in partnership with you and in your best interests. We are also here throughout the year to support you with any queries that you might have or guidance you need.
