Basic Info

Contracting PLUS is Ireland’s leading provider of accounting, compliance and tax services to Independent Professional Contractors operating in Ireland. We provide both Umbrella Company (Managed Service Company) and Personal Service Company solutions for thousands of Independent Contractors and Freelancers working with both indigenous and multinational companies across the island of Ireland.

We not only provide traditional forms of accounting solutions, but we are also at the forefront of technology with bespoke software giving contractors access to their accounts 24/7/365, online and on their phone. Our technology was the winner at the 2020 Accountancy Awards for the Best use of Technology in Accountancy & Finance for End Users.

Contracting PLUS have always been an advocate for independent professionals. We understand the nature of the industry. We provide smart, simple, compliant solutions designed exclusively for independent professionals.

Professional contractors are a significant and rapidly growing group of individuals who are highly skilled and make a valuable contribution to the Irish Economy.

Despite the company’s exceptional growth over the last 20 years we have retained a local business feel and keep things simple for the contractors which is something we continuously work at.

Contracting is a career way of working for many, but it can also be a temporary option for others who want to gain project experience with companies where they might not otherwise have the opportunity. We’re there to ensure all contractors, regardless of experience, age or tenure, remain tax compliant and fully insured throughout their contracting career.
