We Can Calculate Your Take Home Pay

When you are offered your Contracting position, you will want to know how much your contracting income will be, and how much your take-home pay will be. We work with Contractors and advice them how to maximise their take-home pay.

A member of our  Solutions team can prepare a take home pay estimate for you,  tailored to you specifically so it will accurately reflect your potential earnings. It will help you make an informed decision. The team is happy to do this for you and there is no commitment, remember getting set up as a Contractor is Free with Contracting PLUS.

If you would like an indication of  your take-home pay, you can also use our Take-home pay calculator to give you a general idea. However we suggest you let a member of our team assist you for a more accurate calculation.

Is Contracting For You

Being your own boss takes a certain type of person. While you might be in a ‘safe’ 12 month contract now, you need to be aware that no-one else is going to find your next contract/client for you. Recruitment Agencies are a great source to help you find a role, but you are most suited to contracting if you are..

  • Confident & Motivated
  • Have a realistic sense of what is possible (mostly around timelines)
  • Organised and adaptable
  • Able to work alone and have confidence in your decision making
  • Patience – a stream of work won’t come in overnight, and you might have to say no to a few bad offers before the right one comes along.

I would highly recommend Contracting Plus for all your Contracting needs. For someone who was new to Contracting the on-boarding process was made very simple and straightforward, and the ongoing support I have received for Payroll and Tax has been excellent. Everything was handled with such efficiency and expertise.
