What is a contractor?
Contractors are often used as a short-term hiring solution, mainly for time-sensitive projects and for cover during busy periods. Particularly in the Tech industry where a high-level of industry knowledge is vital, contractors are also hired for their quick input and expertise.
Why should I choose to use contractors?
Maternity cover – helping to relieve the pressure on yourself and your permanent staff during absence, whilst leaving the role open for your employee to return to work.
Short term fix – receive quick fulfilment to assist with large workload as and when you need it.
Cost effective– you’re able to agree on a contract term and payment plan that suits you from day one, which will help regulate budget.
Reduced admin – contractors are self-employed; therefore, their admin is taken care of on their end.

When it comes to hiring contractors, you may have heard the term IR35, which refers to a specific tax legislation, introduced by the UK government to monitor tax avoidance from contractors who are believed to be full-time employees, in the eyes of HMRC.
As of April 2021, it is no longer the responsibility of the contractor to determine the status, it will now be with the end-user (the employer/business).
Now that it is the duty of the company to determine the status, with this comes a lot more responsibility and risk when taking on contractors, which is why we are here to help.
We work on your behalf to find you the best possible talent and ask all of the relevant questions – IR35 included. As part of our qualification process, our consultants are trained to work specifically with contractors and an assessment form is sent out to every candidate, requesting whether they are working inside or outside of IR35.
You can be assured that your next contract hire is risk free and has had all of the relevant checks necessary to begin working for your business.
We can advise on the best solution – all you need to do is get in touch.
