More than just an umbrella company, more than just contractor accountants.
Let’s face it, there are lots of contractor accountancy firms and umbrella companies out there. What makes ADVANCE different is that we offer the full range of setup options.
Whether you want to set up your own limited company, work through an umbrella company or subcontract as self-employed, we can help. We’ll offer you impartial advice and guidance on which route is best for you.
What’s more, all of our solutions have received the seal of approval from the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA). That means you can have peace of mind that we do everything by the book.
Here's why you can trust us.
Many contractor services providers claim to be compliant, ethical and trustworthy. Not of all them, however, can prove it. We are accredited by and affiliated with the most respected bodies in the contracting and recruitment sector. Indeed, we are the only company with FCSA accreditation for umbrella company, limited company and self-employment solutions.
ADVANCE‘s service is worth its weight in gold. They’re always on the end of the phone and incredibly professional with a lovely personal touch.
After 20 years I took the decision to go self-employed. This was out of my comfort zone but ADVANCE put my mind at rest. In truth I’d be lost without them.
I cannot recommend ADVANCE highly enough to other contractors. They are willing to go the extra mile, answering all of my questions.

Trusted partners to the UK's leading recruitment businesses.
We strongly advise our members to only work with contractor services organisations who have earned FCSA accreditation, so we’re delighted to be able to point them in the direction of ADVANCE.
Kevin Green, CEO, Recruitment & Employment Confederation
Supervision. Direction. Control.
These three words are re-defining the contracting landscape. We have unrivalled expertise when it comes to understanding, assessing and managing ‘supervision, direction or control’ (SDC).
Our experience dates back to 2014, when SDC became the key eligibility test in self-employment.
This means we are ideally placed to help contractors and recruiters navigate April 2016’s legislation changes relating to travel & subsistence expenses eligibility for umbrella workers.
