More companies like yours

are moving to a self-employed workforce

It is generally accepted that self-employed operatives are more efficient and cost-effective to businesses than employed workforces.

We are aware that your market is truly unique, heavily regulated and fiercely competitive – and, as a consequence of COVID-19, a great many businesses will be looking for ways to survive these hard times and prosper. The Guild’s service is structured to address the challenges of this market and provide crucial savings opportunities.

How can The Guild help?

Established in 1997, we are able to guarantee the status of freelance operatives, thereby allowing you the freedom to operate safely with a self-employed workforce.

No other payments specialist puts greater effort into status compliance and we stand between clients and HMRC. The Guild has paid in excess of 500,000 freelance operatives over 23 years and in that time not a single freelancer’s employment tax status has been overturned. Our record speaks for itself because freelance status compliance is what we do.
