Making A Success of Self-Employment
We’ve helped tens of thousands of contractors over 30+ years to make a success of self-employment.
After taking on contractual work in 2003, Ashok enjoyed self-employment so much that he set up his own Biopharmaceutical Consultancy and with our support in running his limited company accounts, he has “never looked back”. “Don’t wait for the perfect time to start as it will never come. My favourite saying in life is: don’t strive for perfection, aim for progress. Now is the best time to become self-employed.”
Phil Birley and Tim Solomons co-founded Sentinel Scaffolding at the end of 2017. After a “simple and easy” set up, we’ve been helping Phil & Tim manage their accounts, giving them the headspace to ensure they’re keeping people safe throughout their operations.
“My advice to anyone thinking of starting a limited company is to go for it. Don’t be shy, just get started, work hard, and don’t be afraid to ask people for work!”
