Different types of contractor business model


As aforementioned, contractors can set up their business in a number of ways, all of which have their own pros and cons in terms of accountancy. Our highly experienced accountants for contractors in London can help you to choose the model which best suits your work and which best minimizes your tax liability.

Limited Company

This model means that you’re not personally liable if your company goes bankrupt. You remain a separate entity from the company, which could be of use for some contractors, especially if their work can be a little risky in terms of profits and losses. Bear in mind, however, that a limited company must pay corporation tax like any other company. Our contractor accountants in Covent Garden can advise you on all of this and much more.

Sole Trader

This model essentially treats you as the business, meaning that there is no separation between you and your business. This is especially convenient for people with simple businesses who have very few overheads or expenses to consider.


This is essentially a sole trader business model, except that two people (i.e. partners) are involved.

Umbrella Company

This model essentially makes you an “employee” of the umbrella company. This can mean that you’ll pay more in personal taxes, as you are no longer subject to the tax breaks and tax deductions that self-employed contractors have.
