Make business less taxing

Guild Freelancing is a payments service that eliminates tax status & IR35 uncertainty so that you can engage and manage freelance talent securely. Freelancers that we pay earn 25%* more on average than similar roles under PAYE or through umbrellas while your business improves its bottom line. All of this at £0 cost to your business.


How Guild Freelancing works:

We're not your everyday freelancer payments service.


Your freelancers earn more and you improve your bottom line

Our calculations show that freelancers earn 25% more on average when compared with umbrella employees or those on PAYE contracts. Your company also saves thousands on employment costs, at £0 cost to your business.


Attract and retain talent to gain an edge over competitors

Businesses contracting their workforce through Guild Freelancing tend to grow their team significantly due to the higher pay they can offer. You’re able to leap over competitors by attracting industry-leading talent as workers capable of self-employment earn more as Guild Freelancers.


You’re 100% protected against status risk and IR35 risk

Being an intermediary, Guild Freelancing inserts itself into the contractual chain during payment and assumes all tax status risk and payroll responsibility for your freelancers. All clients are indemnified, and our risk is insured.

We handle status compliance and payrolls so you don’t have to

After onboarding, your team no longer need to submit invoices (to you or us) as we operate a self-billing system with all freelancers. Should you want greater control, you can track and handle payments through our online portal.
