Freelancers deliver work on a contract basis for companies and organisations often via their own limited company.
We come in all shapes and sizes and from different industries. We may be called consultants, temps, interims, locums, supply or freelancer but the key point is we run our own business.
Have you done it before or are you a first timer? Is it right for you? Let's find out.

Helping CEO's with sleep challenges. COVID helped me to wake up to my bigger calling: to unlock the deeper-rooted nature of sleeplessness. After being approached by numerous business owners facing sleep challenges following lock-down, I decided that with my strong background in mental health and wellbeing that this was the ideal focus. My niche found me! My approach is to make light of dark situations. Not always, but enough to work out who needs it and who isn't ready yet. Looking on the bright side of life and Monty Python have been great teachers.

​What is IR35 or OP21?

Off Payroll

​IR35 and OP21 are used as shorthand for the UK tax legislation that is designed to identify contractors and businesses who are avoiding paying the appropriate tax by working as 'disguised' employees; or, are engaging workers on a self-employed basis to 'disguise' their true employment status.
Working with 6prog puts you on a perfect footing to engage with other businesses.

IR35 Tools and community to support your business

Our unique setup means you and the client arrange the project together.
You have the right of substitution which helps with IR35/OP21 and can undertake projects as part of a team.
We charge you according to paid work you generate through the platform - everything else is free.
Mutuality of obligation applies as you can continue to create new agile contracts or discontinue services for that client as your company chooses.
6prog actively encourages your business to hold multiple clients.

​Why is a contract important?

Contract agreements

​Whether you’re delivering a simple logo design project or a two year change programme, you should have a contract for the work.
Established freelancers will tell you that a formal agreement both eliminates frustrations [should the project not go well] and sets a tone for how a client works. 6prog makes this process easy by setting out the following in each contract:

  • Explanation of what the project is about
  • Give a deadline for the stages of the project’s completion
  • Inside scope? [list it] Outside scope? [list it too]
  • Explain how project will be broken down into milestones
  • Clear costs per deliverable
  • Easy updates and change requests

How 6prog helps

​6prog provides you with a shareable Profile, proposals generator and more. For example: we will work with you to produce a case study to advertise your business.
Businesses are increasingly defining work on an output basis which makes flexibility more attractive than employer-employee models.
6prog will help you win more opportunities for your business.
