    Another site, First4contractors.co.uk, states that it is IR35 compliant. It had testimonials from one individual saying he was taking home considerably more pay, thanks to the company.

    Official records show the company was dissolved in 2016. However, its phone number still works. When contacted by Money, a representative said he was unable to talk to journalists.

    A director of the firm, Christopher Heath, is a director of another firm called Contractor Genie, which also went bust in 2016. However, its website, contractor-genie.co.uk, still works and claims to be able to help you take home up to 90% of pay. It also says its scheme is backed by a leading QC and is 100% UK tax compliant.

    When called by Money, the person who answered denied it was the right number and put the phone down.
    One contractor is quoted as saying "“Everyone I knew was using it at the time and my employers were happy,” - so it's probably best for NLUK's blood pressure that it's behind a paywall.

    I have contacted somebody we know in IOM Regulator and he is "curious" as to how this company operates. IN particular it may not be registered for activities such as payroll and tax advice. I need to check some more on that.

    For the moment it seems that digging around here is not producing any clarity just more questions.

    Obviously if somebody from the company wants to jump in and explain, we may be able to clear up some of these questions.

    A bloke called Adam answered the phone and it was in a very nonchalant way as if it was his desk phone not a main phone if that helps

    Here is their front door if that helps. Dunno about Finch Road. Looks more like Pigeon Road.
