    Will 2019 be a good year for UK contractors? IR35 and the loan charge

    by Ashley Deakin | Jan 24, 2019

Many of our contractors are feeling persecuted by a range of government initiatives and proposed directives.

    Self-employment vs. contracting in the UK: What’s the difference?

    by Kobus Van den Bergh | Oct 11, 2018

Despite this, HMRC remains convinced that the tool is accurate, and contractors are finding themselves in murky waters. If you find yourself in this kind of a predicament, do not despair, we can shed some light on the situation.
