Contracting with Software Personnel International

Our dedicated contract team take a methodical approach to ensure your contract is easy to understand and there is a smooth transition into your new work environment. If you accept an assignment, our Contractor Care team will support you all the way, providing contractual advice, explain the on-boarding process, invoicing and answer any questions.

As a Contractor with Software Personnel, you’ll have the choice of two contract methods:

  1. Set yourself up as a UK limited company and ensure you’re listed as the Director and are in sole financial control of the company.
  2. Enter into an agreement with one of our approved 'umbrella companies'.

Contracting or freelancing via your own UK Limited Company. This offers greater flexibility and additional tax benefits but means you take greater responsibility for your accounts. If you are trading as a UK Limited Company, invoices raised against an approved time-sheet will be paid to 10-day payment terms.

By joining an umbrella company, you’re essentially taken on as an employee where you can gain employment rights and minimise your administrative tasks. This is ideal for those who work on short-term projects or on a series of short assignments and incur business expenses during their work.
