Our Purpose

Far too many outsourced payroll solutions are rigid, lack flexibility and lack personality – we decided that this just isn’t good enough for the creative freelancers and industries we support.

We are proud to be specialists and do everything we can to make sure that onboarding, pay and compliance will never stop great brands and freelancers from being creative.

Handle Freelance Solutions

Powered by People

and supported by the latest tech! Our payroll professionals and account managers use the best-in-class back office software and customer service platform, all connected to a customer facing Android/iOS app.

Proud to be an industry friend of the Film and TV Charity

Every year the Film and TV Charity support thousands of people in film, TV and cinema to address and overcome personal and professional obstacles. Some have needed to rebuild their confidence, get past a crisis, develop a new skill, or realise a dream project, whilst others have needed more practical support, such as an emergency grant, or access to mental health support.
