Contractors

Intro: Why people start contracting

So, you’re thinking of becoming a contractor.

There’s probably one of three reasons driving this:

You’ve received a Job Offer 

You’ve just received a job offer, and now need to decide on whether to set up a limited company, umbrella company or become a sole trader (or you may not have the choice in deciding).

You’re in the right place. 

This guide will walk you through the best company structure for you, accounting support, VAT, business services you need to consider and finding new opportunities.

You want to increase your pay

You’d like to increase your pay by switching from permanent roles to interim/ contractor roles.

Contracting can be very lucrative.

You’ll need to be comfortable with a certain level of risk (short notice periods), increased monthly admin (as a Limited Company) and less benefits than being an employee (paid leave, sick days).

However, you’ll earn more, get greater flexibility and hopefully grow a consulting business.

Project Flexibility

Getting multiple requests for your services? Amazing.

Setting yourself up as a contractor through a Limited Company means you can start expanding your client base rapidly and work on different projects a few days a week.

You can still set this up as a current PAYE employee of a company, and this can be a great stepping stone to launching your own business.

Let's talk about the right business structure for you.

Decide on Company Structure

Depending on how much research you’ve done then you may have started hearing terms like IR35, Umbrella Company, Limited Company, Sole Trader and more.

It’s a minefield!

When I first started contracting I found it confusing trying to figure out which route to take. 

My personal belief is that people make it overly complex. Perhaps intentionally. You’re more likely to overpay for a service if you don’t understand the nuances (I did).

So, I’ll keep it simple.

Sole Trader or Self Employed

Best For: Small projects outside of a regular PAYE role.

If you work as a freelancer on the side from a Permanent PAYE role and make under £25k a year doing this, then you can operate as a “Sole Trader”.

As an example, if you wanted to start earning some additional income from your regular PAYE role and started doing small projects on UpWork (or similar platforms) then you could just take payment into your personal account.

You don’t need to set up a company to do this, but you’ll need to keep track of your income and file a Self Assessment tax return at the end of each tax year.

Advantages of an Sole Trader structure:

  • Simple set up
  • Can claim a limited number of tax deductible expenses

Disadvantages of Sole Trader structure:

  • Need to keep track of income to report to HMRC
  • Annual Self Assessment Tax Return filings each year
  • Not accepted for any moderately sized company or contractor project roles

Umbrella Company

Best for: Contractors who want to keep things really simple and earn a regular PAYE income.

An umbrella company will sort out your pay, income tax deductions and National Insurance. 

Essentially, they act as an intermediary between you and your client. You typically fill in a timesheet with the amount of hours worked during the last week/ month (depending on payment period). They then invoice your client ,and sort out all your tax and pay you as a PAYE employee.

You won’t have to worry about admin but you’ll have to worry about their fees and you won’t be maximizing your earnings.

Advantages of an Umbrella Company:

  • All paperwork and filing requirements are taken care of.
  • May include personal indemnity insurance.

Disadvantages of Umbrella Company:

  • National Insurance and PAYE are deducted before you get paid.
  • Admin fees can vary from a percentage to a fixed cost.
  • There are some really poor quality Umbrella firms

Limited Company

Best For: projects outside of IR35 (we’ll get to that in a second), invoicing multiple clients easily and tax efficiency.

Advantages of a Limited Company:

  • Professional image and ability to take on multiple clients
  • Tax efficiency due to tax deductible expenses & payment through dividends
  • Limited liability if something happens to the company

Disadvantages of Limited Company:

  • Filing and reporting requirements - especially with VAT registration
  • Reduced privacy - other people can find details about you and your company on Companies House.

IR35

IR35 was supposed to come into effect in April 2020. Due to Covid-19 this has now been pushed back to April 2021.

IR35 is a piece of legislation that requires companies to crack down on contractors who are “disguised employees”. Meaning, their role is identical to a regular employee. 

There have been instances where contractors worked in the same role for 2 or more years which made HMRC question - why aren’t they employees?

Inside IR35 = you are paid the same as a regular employee.

Outside IR35 = you pay yourself how you like.

Working as a contractor through a Limited Company can be considered tax efficient because you can structure your company in a way where you reduce your:

  • National Insurance contributions by paying a salary below a certain threshold
  • Income Tax by paying yourself through Dividends rather than salary (these are taxed differently)

Working outside IR35

There’s a few conditions you need to be able to say apply to you:

  • Exclusivity: you have more than one client
  • Role flexibility: you can choose or have flexibility on where you work or when you work.
  • Substitution: there is a clause in your contract that allows you to identify someone else who can do your tasks if needed.
  • Equipment: you use your own equipment for the job (sometimes this isn’t feasible though with certain security risks).
  • Termination window: you have a short or immediate termination window
  • Benefits: you don’t receive paid leave or sick pay from your client. You should also have your own insurance.

There are a lot of nuances in IR35. We’ve put together a comprehensive IR35 guide to help you navigate these nuances.

Does an Umbrella overcome IR35?

Simply put, no. There’s no real point in operating under an Umbrella Company, who will charge an administration fee, when you’re getting paid as a regular PAYE employee.

You’ll save more by just being a regular PAYE employee at your current company.

How to Register a Limited Company

Do you feel ready to start your Limited Company?

Here’s 3 ways to do it:

  • Companies House: For £12 you can register your company on Companies House here.
  • Formation Agent: From £12 to £99 you can find a formation agent to do it for you with a few added services – see registered agents here.
  • Forma: we provide free registration with all our Accountancy and Virtual Office packages here.

Determine Level of Accounting Support

VAT - Do you need it?

The current VAT threshold is £85,000 and the VAT rate is 20%.

It’s easy to register but does require quarterly filing, so don’t register until you’re ready. Deregistration can get a little tricky so it’s easier to wait until you’ve confirmed this.

You'll need to register for VAT within 30 days of meeting any of these conditions:

  • Your taxable turnover exceeds £85,000 within a 12-month period.
  • You expect your taxable turnover to exceed £85,000 in the next 30-day period.
  • Your business had a taxable turnover exceeding £85,000 over the last 12 months.

Once you’re VAT-registered, you’ll thenneed to add this charge into your services and keep track of the amount owed.

Advantages of registering for VAT:

  • Enhances business perceptions: Registering for VAT tends to lend credibility to your business, and makes your company appear larger and more established.
  • You can reclaim VAT: You can reclaim VAT on goods and services you've purchased from other businesses

Advantages of registering for VAT: 

  • Administration Burden: You’ll need to file quarterly VAT returns, keep good VAT records and pay VAT on time otherwise you’ll get penalties.
  • Services become more “expensive”: For non-VAT registered businesses your services can become more expensive.

Accountants:

Things to look out for:

  • Bespoke software: We’ll get onto this in the next section but be very careful with bespoke accounting software created by the accounting firm. Ensure it has all the features you need, good help documentation and a user friendly interface. Don’t compromise on this or it could cost you time and a lot of money if you get fined!
  • TrustPilot Reviews: There are shocking stories of missed deadlines, hidden costs and terrible customer service from companies.
  • Hidden costs & minimum terms: Some accountants will lock you into a 6 month minimum term and others may charge you for cancellation.
  • Level of support: It's good to ask questions like do they have a team inbox? Do you know who your accountant is? How can you contact them?

We take care of absolutely everything you need in simple monthly packages.

Get all you filing requirements, accounting software, dedicated accountant, partner discounts, tax advice and company registration with our packages. We provide support through bookable calls, online chat and even over text (SMS)—which few other providers do.

With prices starting at £59/month, you can see our contractor accounting packages here.

Accounting Software:

As highlighted in the previous section, beware of bespoke accounting software created by an accounting firm.

The largest small business accounting firms in the UK come nowhere close to the features, scale and support that is available with premium accounting software and they are more focused on acting as accountants rather than software developers.

There's been an incredible amount of innovation and change in accounting software in the last few years, and you can see how these companies are struggling to keep up to date with features.

Personally, I used software that was created by an accounting firm and half my time was spent calling them up after there were bugs with the software, I received incorrect notifications or their support documentation was useless.

After a significant amount of testing we have one recommended software for contractors:

FreeAgent:

Pricing: £14.50 for 6 months then £29 a month.

Unlike Xero and Quickbooks, FreeAgent just has one package for Limited Company accounting. 

This is hands down the best in terms of a simple user experience, packed with features, unlimited invoices, great mobile app and clear deadlines and metrics around what you have coming up (VAT, Corporation Tax) and how much you need to pay.

We include this within our package pricing (starting at £59/mo) or if you have a NatWest, RBS or Mettle business bank account, you can get this for free and we'll give you a £10 discount on your package.

Additional Business Requirements

Business Bank Account:

A business bank account is a mandatory requirement if you have a Limited Company. Given that your business is a legal separate entity from yourself, you have to report your income and transactions through this account.

We've done extensive research to put together an article comparing the best business bank accounts, including testing the sign up process for newer challenger banks like Starling, Tide, Revolut, Mettle and Metro.

Spoiler: Metro has a terrible (and manual) onboarding process that requires you to go into a branch. A lot of accountants tend to recommend it though.

Why? They get a generous kickback for each client they refer.

Insurance:

Depending on your client contracts and the type of work you’re doing, your insurance requirements can vary significantly.

Some contracts may include stipulations for a certain minimum threshold of professional indemnity cover (typically £1 million) whereas others may not require this.

We have a great partnership with Superscript where you can get 10% off your business insurance.

Again, we've compared pricing, service quality, onboarding processes and features (monthly agreement and range of cover you can add and remove) and think Superscript have the best options on the market.

Finding Opportunities

Update your LinkedIn

Once you get into contracting, it’s important to start brushing up your LinkedIn profile.

Getting endorsements, writing posts, commenting on posts and expanding your connections is a great way to get your services and profile out there.

You need to think about how to continuously build out your pipeline of projects.

We take it so seriously, we ran our own experiments on how to create a top 1% profile on LinkedIn.

Sign Up to Consulting Platforms

We put together an ultimate article on 19 places to find contractor roles and jobs (at the time of writing we expect this to expand more).

We are currently building out opportunities on our platform (we're the only contractor specialist to do this in the UK), where you can find specific contractor roles from a variety of different platforms and recruiters.

To oversimplify our hard work, here are some platforms to sign up to when you’re looking for new roles:

Network with Interim Recruiters

Typically I’ve found contractor roles by developing good relationships with a range of recruiters.

Recruiters like to be taken out for coffee too, so do your own business development and start establishing strong connections and building a reputation with recruiters.

We pulled a lot of this together in our where to find contractor jobs article, but here are a few recruitment firms we recommend:

Find a Community

There are some great community newsletters and groups for contractors.

We're currently building a community platform but there are some great ones out there too!

From more specialist contractor websites like IT Contracting to more general sites like Contractor UK, Contractor Weekly or Contractor Eye - you’d be surprised by the level of support available.

Of all of the contractor sites, Contractor UK definitely has the most active forum.

MeetUp groups can also be a good way to tap into the contracting community although this has been limited during C-19.

There are also a range of LinkedIn groups you can join which can help connect you with the community.

What type of business structure is best for you?

If you're looking to the future with the hopes of beginning a journey running your own startup, chances are you're feeling some mixture of excitement, trepidation, and uncertainty when it comes to the finer details of your plan.

Starting your own business is an immensely fulfilling process and an excellent means to flex your creative muscles, but there's a lot of humdrum of business behind the process of turning a vision into a dream.

One of the most important (and one of the earliest) decisions in this process will centre around your business's formation. You'll have to select which type of business structure best suits your goals for the future.

While the choice may sound easy, you'll be well-served by giving the decision ample consideration. The business structure you select will have measurable implications on the way you make money and do business. It'll impact:

  • How much tax you pay
  • Your degree of personal liability should the business fail
  • How much administrative work is involved in the business (both before it comes to fruition and over the course of its life)
  • Your ability to finance and fund your efforts

If you make the wrong selection when it comes time to choose a business structure, you could be faced with a myriad of complications in the future.

Paying professionals for guidance and advice once things go wrong is costly and, for many, an embarrassing affair-performing research well in advance will ensure you're making the best choice for your company and that you can avoid losing out on money or pride later on.

Is a contractor self employed?

Contractors can be self-employed, a worker or an employee. Those who are employed through an umbrella company or an agency could be considered a worker or an employee.

If a contractor is a sole trader or runs a limited company, he or she will then be considered a self-employed person.

How do I become a contractor?

To become a contractor, you need to:

  • Do your research: The first step you'll need to do is to conduct in-depth research, and think through various important factors-from finances and tax implications, to lifestyle and business opportunities-to ascertain if becoming a contractor is the right decision for you.
  • Decide on how you'll operate: As a contractor, you may operate as a sole trader, through your own limited company, or work with an umbrella company or recruitment agency.
  • Develop a business strategy: Strategic planning isn't set in stone-but working out a plan is still helpful, as it is a way for you to consider multiple perspectives, identify potential opportunities and pitfalls and conceptualise back up plans you could fall back on.
  • Get your business finances and insurance sorted out: Setting up a business bank account, registering a company, determining the level of accounting support you need and investing in business insurance are important aspects you need to sort out before you begin contracting.

Key considerations when you register a Limited Company

As a freelancer, contractor, or small business, it is typical to start with the simple structure of operating as a Sole Trader.

While taxes and other administrative work may be relatively easy when you are a Sole Trader, as your volume of business goes up, there are more and more reasons to take on the task of becoming a Limited Company.

For instance:

  • A Limited Company protects your personal assets. If you are found liable in a lawsuit, only your business assets are at risk.
  • A Limited Company is usually more tax efficient than being a Sole Trader.
  • Once you have your name chosen as a Limited Company registered through Companies House, no one else can take your company name.

Luckily, running a Limited Company doesn't have to be exceedingly complex, though following a set plan will help to keep the complexity to a minimum.

5 advantages of a limited company

The advantages of operating as a limited company are well known. It can be a great way to maximise your take-home pay, improve your credibility with customers and limit your personal liability. Like most things in life, it's a case of what's best for your situation. While the positives outweigh the negatives for most people, there are a few things you should know before you make the jump to a limited company.

In this article, we'll outline the disadvantages of operating as a private limited company. Bear in mind that there are many advantages to a limited company and in many cases, these advantages will outweigh the disadvantages, so don't think of this as a report of doom and gloom.

5 disadvantages of a limited company

What are the advantages of a private limited company?

In the UK, the majority of self-employed people operate as sole traders. While there are many advantages to being a sole trader, you could take home more money and give your business a professional edge by setting up as a limited company.

In this article, we'll look at the advantages of operating as a private limited company to see how it could benefit you. If you're interested in seeing whether a limited company could be a good option for your business, check out our Business Structure guide. If you're already operating as a sole trader, making the jump to a limited company is more straight forward than you think.

Advantage 1 ‚- You pay less tax and National Insurance Contributions

Who can turn their nose up at the prospect of increased take-home pay? Well, that's the principle benefit of setting up a limited company and one of the main factors that drive people to switch from a sole trader.

As a director of a limited company, the way you pay tax is different from how you pay as a sole trader. As a sole trader, you'll pay 20% or more on everything you earn over the tax threshold. As a limited company, you typically pay yourself a small salary so you incur as little personal tax as possible. The majority of your income will come in the form of dividends that are taxed at a much smaller rate, meaning you're able to maximise your take-home pay.

As well as the tax benefits, paying the majority of your income through dividends means that you're able to pay less National Insurance Contributions (NICs) as these do not apply to dividend payments.

Example - Here's a quick comparison of the difference in take-home pay for a sole trader and a limited company.

  1. Sole Trader
    Revenue: £40,000
    Expenses: £1000
    Tax at 20%: £5,300
    Class 2 NIC: £158.60
    Class 4 NIC: £2,655
    Take-home pay: £30,886.40


  2. Limited Company
    Revenue: £40,000
    Expenses: £1000
    Corporation tax: £5741.04
    Dividend tax at 7.5%: 1,406.92
    Take-home pay: £ 31,852.04

As you can see, you save £965.64 as a limited company. What's not to like?

When do I need a Limited Company?

There is no clear cut time as to when you should start working through your own limited company. With other routes available-such as operating as a sole trader, or working through an umbrella company-it is always worth weighing up what is best for you and your circumstances.

With that being said, if you plan to work as an independent contractor for the foreseeable future, opening your own limited company at the early stages can maximise your opportunities for reaping the benefits of having your own company straight away.

What are the advantages of contracting?

The advantages of contracting are:

  • Flexibility: Contractors have a lot more control over their work life often deciding when they work, where they work and how they work
  • Increased earnings: Contractors are often paid more due to their skillset and the flexible nature of their working relationships. Additionally, contractors who operate through their own limited company can benefit from tax efficiencies.
  • Greater development: Often working with multiple clients throughout their career, contractors are exposed to a lot of opportunities to develop their skills and build on their experience in their area of expertise.
