    For an initial 3 month contract -as everyone has said - go with a decent umbrella company. If you decide to go Ltd later on have a good read up on IR35 and find a decent accountant

    This will most definitely happen. Don't let them rape you on the rate.

    Thanks to everyone for your advice. I have decided to get in the deep end straightaway and started a Ltd company. Started my contract now so theres no turning back. Can you guys please point me in the direction of what I need to be aware of regd my ltd company obligations to HMRC etc. I am also thinking of SJD as accountants , any reviews regd. them would be good as well.

    I really dont mind the harsh advice as well , I would rather be aware of the worst case scenarios now than to learn the hard way. Appreciate everyones help.

    Simple. Join the PCG. Read all the guides. Best £220 you'll spend starting out.


    Used SJD since 2001, with no complaints and no problems so probably not an impartial judge, but their site has a lot of useful stuff on it as well.
    Blog? What blog...?
