5.0 out of 5 stars Five fat stars! Excellent, factual and informative...., 10 Jun 2013

This review is from: Contractors' Handbook: The Expert Guide for UK Contractors and Freelancers (Paperback)
I have been an independent contractor with my own limited company for 6 months and I am finding this book absolutely indispensable. Although it goes through the whole decision making process of why one might want to become a contractor and I had already taken that step, it was a great checklist for start up activities and for someone who has not yet taken the leap, it is a great support resource.
Chapters on marketing oneself to contracts and IR35. As well as lots of advice on how to comply with HMRC processes with as little stress as possible.
It doesn't show you how to compile annual reports but to be honest most self respecting business owner who isn't already a qualified accountant should get an accountant to do that side of things anyway. This book is about transitioning to independence, discharging one's duties as company director or umbrella company contractor and how to secure successful contracts.
Highly recommended!!

I've not read any other contractor books, but have found this helpful. Some repetition, but I found that useful for emphasis and memory. Could have done with a proof read though. Eg page 335 refers to section 8.5.6 which doesn't exist. There was some bad arithmetic somewhere that I can't find right now.

Even after 10 years of contracting this gave me a good few insights to the industry.

I would highly recommend this book to all that are venturing into the industry.
