Why Hudson

23 years experience, 2,500 clients and currently 37,000 construction freelancers in the workplace

We understand self-employment in the construction sector

Hudson Freelance is a new service with roots that stretch back across twenty-three years of consistent compliance with tax and employment law. 

We are the latest service offered by the founders of Hudson Contract Services Ltd, set up in 1996, to serve the needs of the construction industry, and its entitlement to use freelance builders across all trades without falling foul of HMRC’s ever-changing tax and employment requirements.

Today, using a variety of models we act on behalf of over 2,000 firms throughout the UK and have contracted services provided by more than 145,000 freelance builders.  We have never lost an HMRC status case.  Equally, we have never lost an employment tribunal case, and have accumulated sixteen employment tribunal judgements in our favour over the years.

Since inception, we have defended our business model through two Tax Commissioner hearings and at a High Court appeal.  The outcome?  We have three judgements in tax law in our favour and subsequent acceptance of our processes and justification by HMRC. 

We invite you to join the growing number of private sector companies that are choosing Hudson Freelance to handle the safe engagement of freelance consultants.

To put it in plain English, we have been through the legal process to demonstrate that what we do at Hudson is legitimate. Don’t be tempted by offers that are too good to be true, don’t cut yourself off from access to valuable freelancers, and certainly don’t store up trouble for later. Let Hudson take care of things properly, we will deal with status so you don’t have to.
