Make the Most of your Income

You’re a professional contractor earning really good money because another business recognises the need for your skill and values your knowledge. They aren’t paying for contracting services; they’re investing in their own business. You need to invest in your long-term financial goals. Your Dedicated Account Manager will get to know you and understand your financial drivers. They will advise you on ways to maximise your take-home pay, increase your retention rate and assist you to achieve your personal financial goals. When you are a professional contractor you can also claim business expenses to reduce your tax liability. Take a look at our Expenses for Contractors page to make sure you are claiming all that is available to you!


“I would highly recommend Contracting PLUS if you are looking for a higher return, professional and personal service. Having dealt with other umbrella companies none matched the services Contracting PLUS provided.”


5 Ways you can maximise your Retention Rate

Nothing here is new, but when we work with you to determine your needs, then we can really start to build a plan that gives you the best chance of maximising your take-home pay. We have other ideas – but we save those for our clients!

  1. Invest in a Pension. Consider your current lifestyle. How much do you want in retirement? Pensions are a great way to plan for the long term, but also offer you great tax benefits.
  2. Figure out what’s best for you; consider purchasing a Company Car. Electric vehicles especially can offer tax-saving opportunities if you have your own Company (read our article on buying company cars).
  3. Employ a family member if you need administrative support.
  4. Review all your expenses and make sure anything that’s a business expense is claimed. The ones most often missed are technical/trade magazines, training courses and events relevant to your work.
  5. Move to Contracting PLUS.
  6. There are many benefits to our service including our in-house mortgage broker! Our mortgage broker understands professional contracting and can assist you with your mortgage application.
