Your business is our everything

We’re taking the stress out of self-employment. Whether it’s tax compliance or insuring your business, we’ve got you.

We get a kick out of business insurance and employment status

There are over four million self-employed workers in the UK including contractors, freelancers, consultants, and gig economy workers; all providing vital flexibility and expertise to the thousands of UK businesses relying on their services. That’s a pretty big community!

Qdos are business insurance and employment status specialists dedicated to the self-employed. We provide business insurance and compliance advice to UK limited companies and sole traders as well as the recruitment agencies and businesses that engage them. We’re always looking for the best ways to get our customers the information they need, when they need it.

We’ve been doing this for a long time. Since 1988 actually. We started as a small tax consultancy and now have over 40 staff helping to support your business.

In 2018 we became part of leading speciality insurance group, Tokio Marine HCC, following a twelve-year relationship as our insurance underwriters. This has given us the direct backing of a global insurer with excellent ratings, whilst maintaining the innovation and personal service our customers love!

Our Mission

We want insuring your business to feel good, not painful. We want you to feel confident about tax, not be lost in confusing legislation.

Tax and insurance aren’t topics known for their simplicity. We want to fix that. It’s our job to understand the world of insurance and employment status and translate it into crystal clear advice, and do it with a smile!

We get a kick out of simplifying the complex world of tax compliance and business insurance and turning it into easy to understand advice for self-employed workers and the businesses which engage them.

Let’s make waves.

Contractor Insurance Specialists

We support all self-employed businesses, but we have certain expertise when it comes to limited company contractors.
From pioneering IR35 insurance to the market, to reimagining sickness insurance for contractors, we understand the unique challenges faced by the industry.
That’s why we’re the Best Contractor Insurance Provider for two years running at the ContractorUK awards!

Leading IR35 Experts

We don’t just talk about IR35. We live it.
Since IR35 was introduced in 2000, we’ve been providing advice and defence to UK contractors and now the recruitment agencies and hiring organisations which engage them.
We’ve successfully defended over 1,600 IR35 enquiries, saved contractors over £35million in tax (estimated), and made over 100,000 status assessments in this time.
We also introduced IR35 insurance and the first IR35 compliance tool in response to the off-payroll working rules, which has supported over 2,800 businesses with IR35 reform and earned us the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation 2022!
