Contracting Abroad for Professional Contractors

When contracting abroad there are a number of things to consider. How long will you be there? How often will you be travelling home and where is home? Where is the work being done?
All these things (and others) will have an effect on how and where taxes and social insurance are paid.
Contracting PLUS provide fully compliant Payroll & Tax solutions to professional contractors working in a number of countries (see below). Our solutions are used directly by contractors and by recruitment agencies/contracting companies placing contractors into these countries. From our offices in Ireland the U.K. and India, we work closely with a network of local accountants and tax advisors in each country to ensure our Solutions are suitable to the local market while adhering to local tax legislation and compliance.

The Contracting Plus team deliver superior tax & payroll expertise with smart business solutions that has enabled me to successfully focus on consulting for my international clients.
