Compliant payment solutions for freelancers and their users

Why Guild Freelancing?

We are the only UK provider that fights for the right of freelancers to keep freelancing and earn the maximum income possible.

We unriddle IR35 and sole trader compliance so that freelancers and their users can trade with confidence.

Our bespoke status assessments create certainty for all parties.

What do we do?

We engage and pay freelancers across all sectors within the UK.

Importantly, we do not operate an umbrella service (PAYE) and consider our solution to be the ethical and compliant alternative to umbrella.

Take-Home Pay Comparison

Based on a hypothetical income of £700 per week

With expenses

While the recent Exchequer case (Exchequer Solutions Ltd v HMRC [2022]) has narrowed the circumstances in which tax-free expenses are claimable by umbrella employees, this comparison imagines a scenario in which £100 expenses are legitimately claimed.

Figures are illustrative only.

Without expenses

While modest business expenses have been assumed for the self-employed freelancer, expenses for the umbrella employee have been omitted on the basis of the recent decision in Exchequer Solutions Ltd v HMRC [2022].

Figures are illustrative only.
