Once you’re set up, we’ll start to match you with projects. Our proprietary software allows us to find the best fit for your skills.
When we find the right match, we’ll approach you with potential projects and set up your first work with us.
Questions about IR35?
The new IR35 regulations come into effect from the 6th April. These mean that if you work through a personal service company (PSC), you’ll need a Status Determination Statement (SDS) for every engagement with medium-sized and large clients in the private sector and, if work is deemed to fall inside IR35, you’ll need to pay tax at source via an umbrella company. At Obelisk, we help you through the process. Our online portal will record all your SDSs for engagements through us, plus we can introduce you to our own, FCSA-accredited umbrella partner.
