Limited company contractors

Most often full-time veterans, limited company contractors are the backbone of many tech, financial, and energy firms who rely on highly skilled and specialist workers when projects arise.

We’re the UK’s Best Contractor Insurance Provider 2022 and the leading experts on IR35 having defended over 1,600 enquiries and saved contractors an estimated £35million in tax.

We know you’re busy people, so we want to make insuring your business as easy as possible with an account-managed service so you’re never passed around a call centre, and straightforward renewals you can process online at any time via your online account.

Explore all limited company insurance


There are over 4 million self-employed workers in the UK, ranging from full-time professionals to part-time side hustlers, parents juggling childcare with earning an income, and young workers beating the 9 to 5.

Freelancing brings freedom and a unique pride in work. It sparks creativity and commitment to deliver great things, and we want to support that.

Protecting your business is a necessity but it shouldn’t be hard or confusing. We want you to feel good and understand what you’re getting when you insure your hard work and income.
