To use our contractor take-home pay calculator, simply enter your hourly or daily rate above and our tool will calculate your pay for you. The amount of money you’ll be bringing home at the end of each month is likely to be a big factor when choosing how to work as a contractor.

If you’re new to contracting and can’t decide whether to work as an umbrella employee or a limited company director, we have put together a range of useful guides with all the relevant information you need to help you make the right decision for you.

Besides take-home pay, it is likely that you will have other questions when it comes to starting your contracting career; for example expenses, the flat rate VAT scheme and IR35 are things that you may like to know about. At SJD Accountancy we have over 28 years of contractor accounting experience, so you can be assured that when you appoint us to be your accountant, you’re in good hands.
