As a Civil Engineer you may be designing, constructing, or maintaining our buildings, roads, bridges, etc; whatever your chosen discipline we know that your days can be long and sometimes stressful. Whether you have been working as a civil engineer for many years or whether you are still working for your first employer, there has never been a better time to take the step to becoming an engineering contractor.
Due to recent economic events larger organisations are more reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ongoing costs that accompanies them. However, these organisations still need to meet their everyday business needs and as such are turning towards a flexible working force; the contractor.
Operating as a contractor through your own business allows you to take on these temporary contracts and often negotiate much higher rates of pay as you will be undoubtedly cheaper in the long term for your clients than them taking you on as a full-time employee.
As a business owner you will also be able to submit expenses for tax relief which allows you to take home a much larger percentage of your pay than an employee operating on a PAYE basis. This is not to mention other benefits such as operating under the flat rate VAT scheme which allows you to benefit from additional monies to take from your business at no extra cost to your client.
With this increased reward comes the increased responsibility of running and managing your own business which can be a time consuming affair; unless you employ a specialist engineering accountant such as Arleys.
