Here are some services we’ll introduce you to
We strongly advise freelancers and contractors have their insurance arranged and secured. Kingsbridge Insurance provide a safety net so you avoid any costly liabilities.
This includes professional, public and employers’ insurance, as well as extras such as IR35 indicators and 24/7 online compatibility. Pay flexibly too; whatever suits you.
Contractor Mortgages Made Easy (CMME)
Seeking a dream property? Head to CMME for a clear, dependable route to a mortgage. They teach lenders to set aside their prejudice over a contractor’s earning pattern, which often keep people from owning a home.
CMME have also made mortgages competitive for contractors, as they deserve to be.
Cater Allen Banking
Private bank Cater Allen has an excellent pedigree – it’s in the Santander group, but holds its own FSCS licence and gives you 30 free transactions per month.
Contractors and freelancers are the core member base; many of them choose fixed-term deposits, with instant access to their funds. If you’re with us, you don’t need a minimum account balance to apply.
