Tax Considerations

Contractors are responsible for their own tax, which means you don’t have to pay employment tax, social security tax (FICA), or unemployment tax. You also save time having to calculate tax on their paycheck. You only pay contractors the flat amount they charge, which is considerably easier to handle.

Provides more flexibility

All businesses have peaks and troughs. One month they’re flush with work, the next there’s nothing happening. This means that your employees are either working round the clock or twiddling their thumbs.

If you hire contract employees, you can scale your workforce up and down according to your workload. It’s also easier if you decide to follow the contract-to-hire model and recruit one of your freelancers as a full-time employee. You know and like them, they’ve proven their skills, and they are familiar with your business.

Saves time in hiring.

Another area where you can save time is in the hiring process. Recruiting a full-time employee takes a long time. You have to post a job ad, source candidates, screen and interview them, and then wait while they serve their notice. In contrast, you can hire a contract worker within days, especially if you already have some contacts or people who have worked for you before.
