We provide business insurances and employment status services to support self-employed workers and the businesses which engage them.

From helping businesses to manage legislative change, to insuring workers against the risks they face, our unique combination of insurance and compliance expertise means that we can ensure flexible working thrives.

We are the UK’s largest provider of specialist contractor insurances, and the leading authority on IR35 status, for both limited company contractors and the businesses which engage them under the off-payroll rules.






Our Mission


There are over 4 million self-employed workers in the UK including limited company contractors, freelancers, consultants and gig economy workers. This workforce provides vital flexibility and expertise to the thousands of UK businesses which rely on their services.

Despite this, these independent workers are often seen as tax avoiders by government, overlooked when it comes to vital support schemes (such as during the Coronavirus pandemic), and lack resources tailored to their unique needs.

Our mission is to ensure a thriving industry of flexible workers through pragmatic compliance solutions, insurance protection, and tax support for both the workers themselves, and the businesses which engage them.

To do this, we put compliance first, aim to simplify complicated issues, and design our products and services to support this aim.



Our Values


We are guided by our core values which determine how we engage our customers, design our products, and interact with each other:



From customer-driven solutions for the varying needs of every business, to flexible approaches to a changing legislative landscape.

Straightforward Communication


With our customers, partners, and with each other - we believe in having open, honest, and straightforward communications.

Knowledge and Experience


Our services are underpinned by the knowledge and experience of our team which is integral to providing our customers with a trusted voice in the industry.



It is important to us that our customers can depend upon our team through a culture of accountability and impartial decision-making.


The Qdos Story


We began as a small tax consultancy in 1988 under the name Mentor Tax Services. In 1999, we rebranded to Qdos and began specialising in the new IR35 legislation which was enforced in 2000.

Since then we have assessed over 150,000 engagements for IR35 status, defended over 1,600 IR35 enquiries, saved contractors an estimated £35million in tax, and supported over 2,800 hirers and recruiters to compliantly manage the off-payroll rules.

In 2005 we began providing insurance cover for independent workers, pioneering IR35 insurance for limited company contractors and reimagining accident and sickness insurance for the contractor market.

Since then we have protected over 90,000 independent professionals across over 1,500 lines of work, including IT contractors, health and beauty professionals, rope access engineers, and electricians to name a few.

In 2018 Qdos became part of leading specialty insurance group, Tokio Marine HCC, following a twelve-year relationship underwriting Qdos business policies. Today we maintain our core values and personal service but with the backing of a global insurer with a solid foundation, proven track record, and excellent industry ratings.
