Sole Trader status
I operate as a sole trader and am responsible for my own tax and National Insurance contributions.
I understand the need for strict confidentiality and will not discuss your business with anyone else, I will be happy to sign a confidentiality agreement.
Where I work
I usually work at my client’s offices, but also work from home when the project scope allows and the client is happy for me to take work away from the office. I have my own laptop equipped with the latest MS Office and antivirus software. I am experienced in working on a range of software packages and am able to quickly adapt to variations in Microsoft Office programmes.
I am covered by Professional Indemnity (PI) and Public Liability (PL) insurance.
I have standard daily rates for project management, and will provide charities and not for profit organisations with a reduced daily rate. I will invoice you for my time on a monthly basis, or at the end of a project where the project term is no longer than one month, my payment terms are 14 days.
Where I am required to travel to carry out my role I will always charge travel at the cost price and mileage at 50p per mile. Travel costs may be worked into a daily rate or invoiced separately and will be agreed prior to the start of a project.
