Strong, consistent growth puts eastern England contractors in the driver's seat, particularly for those with technology skills, UK Contract Partners reports
London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/24/2015 -- UK Contract Partners, one of the United Kingdom's top contractor support services, released an informative new report focusing on the booming East of England high-technology contracting scene. Available at the UK Contract Partners website, the new report exposes a strong surge of growth in contracting opportunities in eastern England, fueled by, among other forces, great demand from the National Health Services for skilled technology contractors. A one-stop shop for contractors in the United Kingdom, UK Contract Partners provides all-in-one umbrella-company setup and maintenance services that help contractors cut their tax bills, avoid ir35, and better enjoy the rewards of contractor status.
"While the contracting industry is thriving throughout the United Kingdom," UK Contract Partners founder David Spowart noted, "the situation in the East of England really stands out. Strong month-on-month demand for contractors, particularly technology specialists, means that skilled, independent workers are doing very well there. We hope readers will enjoy the new report at our website, and we plan on taking another look at the East of England before long."
As companies in the United Kingdom have increasingly sought to assemble more flexible, cost-effective work forces, some of the most ambitious and independent workers have discovered new opportunities. Becoming an independent contractor instead of a salaried worker, many have found, can be a route to greater freedom and self-sufficiency, particular for those with in-demand skills.
At the same time, the arrangement can involve some potential pitfalls. Most committed contract workers in the United Kingdom make use of limited company intermediaries that are designed to improve the tax implications of working under contract, for example. In some cases, though, even those who do bona fide contract work have found themselves falling afoul of regulations like IR35, whereby the government insists that National Insurance and other tax contributions be paid, as if contract income were the result of conventional employment.
UK Contract Partners is the top source of effective assistance with such issues. The company's services can be used to establish a brand-new limited or umbrella company that will stand up under scrutiny related to IR35 and other regulations, ensuring that contractors can focus specifically on the work that they specialize in. UK Contract Partners' ongoing maintenance services make it simple and affordable to keep up with regular obligations related to umbrella companies, too, so that clients are typically absolved of needing to do anything themselves.
As such an important, committed partner to contract workers throughout the United Kingdom, UK Contract Partners keeps a close eye on the opportunities and challenges they face. That ongoing focus led to the creation of the company's new report into the contracting industry in the East of England. The new publication, which identifies and details a local industry of great vitality and potential, is available for free to visitors to the UK Contract Partners website.
