    It would seem that Procorre have re-started their drive to get more contractors on board. I was contacted before Christmas as I was about to finish a contract but having started a new one at the beginning of the year, it would seem I was just the target they were looking for.

    I've had an individual illustration given to me and I don't see how I can make this work for me. I give them a chunk of my hard earned pay, they let me keep back net pay and dividend payment, probably about equal to what I would take as a monthly payment, however, this goes directly to my business account. My business account has a minimum amount that needs to go in on a monthly basis, and the Procorre payment comes nowhere near it so already I'm out of pocket. Next - they give you a large expense account. Again, I don't see how that works when you have to provide evidence of expenses. What's the point in having £1,000+ expense account if your actual expenses are closer to £200. Finally, introducing other contractors to their service where you can boost your income by the number of people you introduce. Finally, they want to offer in-house accountancy which doesn't really work for me. An accountant should be offering independent advice and I'm still to be convinced that an in-house accountant is not a conflict of interest.

    Having tried to do some homework on these people, like most others here can testify, this is the only thread I could find on the company which in itself is worrying.

    I'm sure that for some people, this would work but having contracted for nearly 15 years, this doesn't feel like a good fit for me.

    Based on the comments already raised along with my own doubt, it looks as if I will be declining the offer on the table.

    So having received a reply to my email mentioned above in this thread, it appears that you have not provided any consultants to the end client. Perhaps you have provided tax and payroll services to agencies providing contractors to the end client?

    This is a different concept.

    I spared their blushes by removing the reference.

    That's a <removed for clientco privacy>. CxO is a close friend. Perfect reference project thanks. I'll fire an email.

    * I am really starting to wonder if this is a troll account. Anybody who offered that link as a reference site has to be out of their ******* mind.

    I did speak to them, once, a long time ago.

    At the time, I'm sure there was some dodgy remuneration package / method attached, cannot remember the percentage, but, it wasn't for me.

    That's one of the values that underpins their business - confusing customers



    And this is the other one - confusing suppliers:

    Agreed. If accusations are flying, the defendant should, no matter how guilty they seem on the face of it, be afforded a right to reply.
