    If you are set up as a limited company or if you are a sole trader who would be paid through our PAYE payment structure.

    Freelancers set up as a limited company would be looking at between £250 per day.

    Freelancers being paid through our PAYE payment structure would be looking at £200 per day plus statutory holiday pay.

    For those of you thinking of applying who don't really know the advantages of working as a freelancer through an agency like Orchard I would like to mention a couple of key points.

    For every booking you do through Orchard, you will be paid the week following the assignment. Another great advantage is that we carry the burden when it comes to collecting payment from the client and you get paid even if we don't.

    Freelancers who are on the PAYE payment structure will receive statutory holiday pay.
