We work with international Freelance Contractors to facilitate projects and achieve an optimal financial position.

We facilitate your project from start to finish, maximising your earnings through optimal tax efficiency, together with some unique industry benefits.

Overcoming Obstacles for work

When starting a project abroad, you can be faced with issues that can hinder your ability to start work on that particular project. Being denied a work visa, or the process taking longer than anticipated may mean that the agency places another candidate. If you don’t have the correct visa requirements or the necessary health insurance when required, this can mean your work visa being denied or delayed.

Other issues such as not being paid on time lead to disatisfaction in the workplace. Moreover, not receiving the correct advise and guidance to fulfil your in-country fiscal obligations for tax and social security can result in an unexpected bill, for which a non-payment could hinder your ability to return to this country for future work.

Cost Neutral

Perhaps one of the most important things to consider is that, as with a good accountant, our high end bespoke service is cost neutral. In comparison, a ‘one size fits all’ solution could, in fact, turn out to be a high risk and costly alternative in the long run.

Getting set-up

When you come on board with IF Contracting, we will assign you your own compliance manager to take you through our transparent and concise registration process.

We will keep you informed every step of the way, so you know how your application is progressing and if there is anything you need to do. Our extensive experience within the contractor industry helps us to make the process easy and get it right first time, every time.

Work Visas

With immigration laws in a constant state of flux, our specialist team is able to offer the appropriate level of legal assistance and advice in regards to any immigration matters.

We also provide securement of work visas through our global partner network as quickly as the local authorities will distribute them. Because we can secure work visas efficiently, it directly affects how quickly you are able to start a project in another country.

Earning and Payment

As an international Freelance Contractor, the most important thing to you is that you get paid quickly and efficiently. We offer you payment terms of just 24 hours. Your money is dispatched form our account within 24 hours from when the payment is received by our client.

We aim to maximise your earning potential by providing you with access to expert local knowledge. We ensure compliance with domestic and foreign legalisation and our complex understanding of the business environment gives you an edge. We provide you with a free projection of earnings, considering all project related costs and liabilities, so that you know how much you will be earning.

Tax and Security Management

Whilst working on your project, you will be required to register and pay taxes; both federal and municipal, and social security.

IF contracting manages this process and keeps you up to date with progress by assigning a compliance manager to you that will advise and guide you through the process.
