Advance provides specialist support to the UK’s contractors and the recruiters who find them work.


Known for its commitment to compliance, Advance is the only company with Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA) accreditation for umbrella, limited company and self-employment solutions. Advance prides it self on its expertise in ‘supervision, direction or control’ (SDC) and its ability to offer solutions that are both compliant and commercially attractive.


Here are some examples of what makes us different:

  • Limited – contractors who choose our platinum package get up to £13m business insurance cover included along with free company incorporation and a free annual self-assessment tax return.
  • Self-employment – contractors who sub contract with us will be choosing the industry’s only FCSA-accredited self-employment solution
  • Expertise – Managing director Shaun Critchley is a qualified solicitor who has advised many of the UK’s leading recruitment firms on changes in legislation and other legal and compliance matters.
