Maximise your retention rate

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Many credit that saying to Einstein, but there’s no proof he actually said it.  Nevertheless it’s a great quote. As an existing contractor, we think you’re insane if you’re not giving yourself the best chances of maximising your retention. Don’t worry though, Contracting PLUS have a cure for that type of insanity.

Don’t make this mistake

The first mistake every self-employed person makes is thinking that by spending less they’ll have more money. The logic seems sound but let’s take a look at what you do every day. 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 happiness.


I believe in recognising good service and you were very helpful and went above what was required for my query and I greatly appreciate it. I have been with Contracting Plus for two years now and the service has been faultless for the whole time and this is another example of it.

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. What’s your figure? How much do you want in retirement. Pension payments have a 100% retention rate.
  2. Figure out whats best for you; mileage, company car or an electric car (read our article on Electric 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.
