The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed (IPSE) is a not-for-profit trade association that represents the interests of the self employed, consultants, contractors and freelancers. It has evolved to become their champion, campaigning on issues that matter to the freelancing community, irrespective of industry focus.

IPSE's aim is to work for proper recognition of independent consultants, contractors and freelancers as a genuine and valuable sector of the economy, generating wealth and employment, providing the industry with a flexible workforce. In seeking to promote its members commercially and support their development, IPSE actively develops tools, services and relationships that will assist them. 

IPSE members work in a wide variety of sectors including oil and gas, engineering, information technology, management consultancy, marketing, telecommunications, construction and pharmaceuticals. IPSE offers them a broad range of services, including cover by its Professional Expenses Insurance (PEI) policy, legal and tax helplines, comprehensive guides, draft contracts and regular workshops, seminars and networking events.

IPSE represents UK consultants, contractors and freelancers on matters relating to regulations, taxation, economics, employment and other issues that affect them. In seeking to exert influence, the policy team engages in direct discussion with senior Ministers and civil servants, participates in consultation exercises, forges relationships with unions and other complementary organisations and produces a comprehensive range of research and policy papers. IPSE also supports a selection of taxation cases for its members each year.
