  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Why am I paying Employers NI?

    OK so I get asked this question over and over and it appears that some companies still cease to explain things properly to contractors leaving them disgruntled when they see their first payslip, so let me explain the situation in simple terms for any newbies...

  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: Should I trade as a Limited Company, umbrella or composite

    Hi everyone, Can't help but notice that there are many posts on here that ask the same question - should I use an umbrella or my own Ltd Company.
