IPSE, The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed, is the UK’s only not-for-profit membership organisation for the self-employed. Between IPSE’s policy campaigns, website full of resources, and member benefits, it has everything to support the self-employed, all in one place.
A membership with IPSE gives you the tools to protect and grow your business, a community to meet fellow freelancers and importantly, the opportunity to add your voice to campaigns in industry and government.
An IPSE membership offers you a suite of essential insurances, such as up to £10,000* in cover if a client, umbrella company or agency goes into administration. Membership also offers cover against HMRC tax investigations, compensation for contract failure, cover for jury service and so much more.
Grow your business
As a member, you also gain access to 24-hour helplines, a wide selection of essential templates, and a benefits platform to access the best deals.
As more and more people go into freelancing seeking freedom and flexibility, IPSE is working hard to make sure politicians recognise this and make the UK a good place for them to do business. By becoming a member of IPSE you add your voice to this cause.
Join a community
Plus, when you join IPSE, you join a supportive community of people who have chosen to be their own boss. Events, forums and our online groups all help you get to know other IPSE members from a range of industries.
