Contractors – Our Background

At Finstech, we specialise in providing high quality contractors to our clients. Perhaps you’ve heard people say “the best contractors are only available on an outside IR35 basis” or “you can get great contractors on an inside IR35 basis” but, in our experience, this isn’t the case.


It’s true that, with the introduction of the IR35 legislation, the contract market has changed significantly. A lot of quality contractors are only seeking outside IR35 engagements, whereas a lot of companies are only willing to consider contractors on an inside IR35 basis. Other contractors have decided to move back into the permanent market, accepting roles with a relatively comparative package compared to an inside IR35 arrangement via an umbrella company.


But there are still some fantastic resources available on an inside IR35 engagement! Have a look at a couple of case studies where we have been able to solve some resource challenges for our clients in a very short period of time, within budget, on inside IR35 contracts!

Perhaps you are a permanent employee looking to move into the contract market, or you have only worked on outside roles and are interested in what the potential differences are in remuneration. Have a look at our Contractor’s Guide to help you navigate the initial set-up and transition to an inside IR35 engagement, and identify the differences between inside & outside IR35 engagements.

A Guide to IR35

You may have heard of the IR35 legislation but, what is it? Why does it exist and what is the impact on the contract markets? Please see our guide to IR35 which provides some answers to your questions.

Rob was an absolute pleasure to work with. He quickly understood all my requirements and used his extensive knowledge and experience to produce a comprehensive job spec which was better than anything I could have conceived. He also identified alternative candidate types which I hadn’t previously considered and this proved instrumental in making an offer for the role. Professional and highly recommended!
