Sunday Group starting affinity service

The Sunday Group is introducing an affinity service that will offer financial advice as well as legal, accounting and human resources services to the self-employed.

Contractor Care will see it team up with lawyers, accountants and HR consultancies to offer the service.

The national IFA, which has more than 50 RIs, will initially target its database of 400,000 IT specialists before expanding its reach to self-employed nurses, engineers and professional sportspeople.

Its strategic partners have not been confirmed but consultation is taking place in August with a view to a September launch.

Managing director Dermod Atkinson says there is huge demand by the self-employed for clarification on tax planning, human resources, accounting and legal issues.

Atkinson says: “The main benefit is that rather than having to source four or five different partners and have a number of different contacts, this will all be brought together by a member of staff at Sunday. There are a number of issues that are unique to contractors and they need help understanding the options available.”
