More and more people are choosing to operate through their own limited companies, partly due to changes in corporate working practices but also because of the freedom, control and enjoyment that comes from being your own boss.
The fact that contractors, consultants and freelancers can command much higher daily rates of pay may also be an influencing factor, but surely this is only to be expected, bearing in mind the lack of holiday and sick pay, and the other additional benefits which are lost when moving from employment to contract work.
