Established Limited Company Contractor

If you secure a new contract through Consilium then the transfer should be seamless.  We run an online timesheet and invoicing process with clearly defined invoice deadlines and payment schedules throughout the year.

We know how important it is that you are paid on time and are very proud of our 100% on-time payment record to date – subject to timesheets and invoices being received on time and without error. We additionally provide a 7 day contact service should you ever need to talk to us about paperwork or payment queries.

Where the client permits us to work “Open Book”, meaning that our mark-up is declared, we are therefore able to maximises the pay rate to you the contractor.

We also like where possible to meet all of our contractors face-to-face at our offices or off-site.  If necessary we can even visit you at home or your place of work. We know it is important to understand each individual’s needs and is important in establish a clearly defined and mutually productive relationship.

Finally, we also consult regularly with leading Tax Consultants that ensure that our contracts and terms are fully IR35 compliant.

New Limited Company Contractor

With the support of a nominated Accountant or Tax Consultant, we will happily assist you to set up your own business, including:

  • Setting up the Ltd Company / Certificates of Incorporation
  • Setting up a Business Bank Account
  • VAT Registering
  • Ltd Company Insurance
  • Quoting, Timesheet and Invoicing Procedures
  • Running your accounts
  • End of Year Tax Returns

This is generally the best option for professionals intending to contract on a long-term basis and genuinely self-employed.

Umbrella Company

Considered to be a hassle free option to setting up your own Limited Company. Although you will be charged a fee every month to process your timesheets, the benefits made available to you include:

  • Tax and NI are deducted on your behalf
  • Certain business related expenses can be recovered
  • Provision of advice and support on latest legislation including IR35 and AWR regulations.

We have worked with several Umbrella and professional Accountancy providers over the years. You are of course free to utilise the services of any provider whom you choose; however based on outstanding levels of service received to date coupled with expertise in dealing with contractors, we are happy to recommend Brookson One as our main provider.

Both are happy to discuss any aspect of their service offering, be it a beginner’s introduction to contracting or a more complex query that may need addressing.

Please note – we have no contractual arrangement or referral scheme in place with either supplier. Any advice that you choose to take is entirely your responsibility and we encourage you to seek independent advice if in doubt.

To discuss any aspect of Contracting or to employ a contractor, please contact Steve Doyle in the first instance on 01789 201040 or via
