The perfect choice for both recruiters and contractors


We’ve been helping contractors with their finances for over 15 years, developing in-depth expertise on all aspects on contracting life. We work in partnership with over 2,500 recruitment agencies, including leading companies like Hays, Capita, Venn and Reed. Our fast and efficient system will have your contractors set up in no time, and our knowledge of legislation means they will always remain 100% compliant.

Nothing is more important to us than providing outstanding support. We work to stringent KPIs and make it our mission to continuously improve – taking on board feedback from you and your contractors to find out what we can do better – and then making it happen.

Plus, we’ve expanded our support team and extended our opening hours, so contractors are more likely to get hold of us and less likely to bother you with queries. So you can get on with placing candidates and earning commission, safe in the knowledge that your contractors are being looked after.
