The future of contracting

Help shape the future of freelancing and contracting

Share your views about independent working

Think back to the last 12 months of your contracting career: have you achieved everything you wanted? Are you satisfied with the experience you’ve gained? What would you have done differently if you had the chance?

At Parasol, we want to know how this last year has been for you and we would like to invite you to share these insights in this year’s instalment of the Contractor Attitude Survey.

What is the Contractor Attitude Survey?

The annual Contractor Attitude Survey is an opportunity to glimpse into the world of the self-employed. It’s a chance to share your thoughts and opinions on key issues. Whether you have thoughts about legislation updates, changes to the marketplace or any other insight about what it means to be a part of the flexible workforce, we’re inviting you to share it.

The information you provide is invaluable as it helps to identify key trends, better predict what the future might have in store and, most importantly of all, shed light on how the self-employed can be better supported.

What’s included in this year’s survey?

This year, we’re hoping to gain invaluable insight on a number of key issues relating to freelancing and contracting, including:

Your working practices

We’d like you to share a little bit about your sector, where you work, the length of your contracts and whether you’ve noticed any difference in demand over the last 12 months.

Your financial situation

How confident do you feel about supporting yourself? What are your plans for the future? Do you believe any of the changes over the past year will impact your financial security?

IR35 reform

How prepared are you for the private sector reforms and what impact do you believe it will have on your current working practices?

If you have thoughts, views or opinions to share, we’d love to hear them. Complete the short survey and you could win one of five £100 shopping vouchers for a retailer of your choice. All your information will be protected and remain confidential.

Take part in the Contractor Attitude Survey today.

    Your Contractor survey form has a bug.
    I answered the question about has your rate increased, and I answered ‘stayed the same’, and it errored stating I hadn’t answered the question.

I switched over to QAccounting a few months ago and haven't looked back. I get to speak to my own client manager and accountant, the prices were the best I had seen, and I paid exactly what it said online (no extra costs). Very happy with QA.
