The best option for you depends on your plans, 'one off' contract or 'contractor for life'? [Read More...]

Umbrella Compare Review of Liquid Friday

Straightforward service at a very reasonable price. You get everything you need, plus generous inclusive insurances (should be more than adequate for most contractors).

Nice enough on the phone, though most communications will probably be done online/email.

They're very happy to answer any questions you may have.
