Visit our Benefits of Contracting page to see a comprehensive breakdown of the pros, and cons.

Once you have decided to go contracting you need to decide whether working through an umbrella company or working through your own limited company is the route for you. Our comparison table breaks down the differences to help you decide which option is best for you. However, a lot of this depends where you will be working.

If you decide to work through your own limited company, before you accept a contract working offshore it is vital that you find out whether you can continue to work in this way or not. There are a number of factors that will affect this including

  1. The length of your contract
  2. The country you are working in
