Contractor Finances

Making a success of contracting requires a little planning and lots of preparation, but when you’re preoccupied with your contract work and home life, there is often little time left to think about your own finances and find a suitable provider. At Contracting Scout we take care of the boring stuff relating to your own contractor finances, so that you can concentrate on what matters most to you.

We put in the necessary time to understand your individual working preferences and will recommend a dedicated provider to suit your needs, whether you’re looking to secure a mortgage or want to know more about your payroll options.

All our partners are providers we trust. They have been thoroughly researched by our team and in many cases we have negotiated preferential rates not available on the open market. As experts in their field, we know that you will receive a first class service with dedicated advice and support.

Business Insurance

We can source cover for every type of business insurance you might need and get it for you at a great rate.

Residential Mortgages

Buying a home as a contractor doesn’t have to be difficult. We work with specialised mortgage brokers who understand your income streams.


Personal Loans

Our specialist debt brokers can bring you one step closer to growing your rental property portfolio.

Tax Queries

Our partners offer the very best tax advice and support to help contract workers quickly resolve their tax disputes.

Accountancy Services

Running a limited company can seem daunting but our tried and tested accountants will take away the administrative burden and keep you on track.

Payroll Services

We can help you choose a reliable umbrella company that will take care of all your tax and NI calculations and make the payments on your behalf.

Business Insurance

Our specialist partners can accommodate every type of policy you could need as a contractor, from Professional Indemnity, Public Liability and Employers Liability to Occupational Personal Accident Cover and Directors’ & Officers’ Liability.

Contracting Scout will help you determine the right cover for you and with our pre-negotiated prices, we can get it for you at the most affordable rate.

Buy to Let Mortgages

The buy to let market has changed considerably in recent years with more changes on the horizon. The mortgage providers we work with will help you consider your options, analyse how market changes may affect you and assist with the whole process once you’re ready to proceed.

If you operate via a limited company, you may be able to buy your property through your business! Experienced providers will look at your individual circumstances to determine whether this option is right for you, but using your limited company to obtain an additional property can provide a higher tax relief and gives you the chance to grow your buy to let portfolio faster.

Residential Mortgages

Whether you are simply moving home, looking to re-mortgage, a first time buyer or even a buy to let investor, we can put you in contact with expert mortgage advisers who are trained to understand the specific challenges contractors face when applying for a mortgage.

If you have found working with a mainstream mortgage lender to be near on impossible, you will be reassured to know that our providers only work with contractor friendly lenders, who have a clear and proper contractor focused lending policy.

At Contacting Scout we fully research and vet all our providers to ensure they understand the contractor market and comply with our rigorous due diligence requirements.

Working with Contracting Scout means that you get the help and support you need to find the best available deal.
