About the employer

We are a design consultancy with offices in Birmingham and Redditch and we deal with both public, private and domestic services of all complexities and sizes. Compared to most other similar companies on Local Surveyors Direct and other similar sites we also undertakes services for public contracts and we are fully certified ISO 9001, 14001 and BS 18001 with UKAS and are also fully insured for £5 million professional indemnity and £10 million public liability. However, on domestic jobs our service fees are very competitive and comparative with the market values if not lower.

From April 2020, the IR35 ‘off payroll’ rules already applicable to the public sector were extended to the private sector. This has directly affect a the majority of limited company contractors and their employers.

We have come up with an innovative solution that allows you to keep or contract back your contractors without having to declare them inside "IR35 pay-off". This is achieved by sub-contracting them through us.

Our client support solutions are based on sub-contracting small limited companies with two or less decision making directors, who are however, specialists in their fields. They are designed to provide the best business outcomes for our end clients in a collaborative and innovative approach.

We ensure that the limited company directors are setting up their companies in a way that is clearly falling outside IR35 regulations.
