About the author Dave Chaplin

Dave Chaplin

Dave Chaplin has lived and breathed contracting since he became a professional contractor in 1997. He spent seven years working as an IT contractor in the City of London on critical, cutting edge IT infrastructure and development projects for global players. Dave’s contracting career has seen him survive and thrive through the highs of the boom years and the lows of the dot-com crash. He founded popular contractor website, and has been its full-time CEO since 2004.

That role has seen Dave consult with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), HM Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs on the future of IR35 and on tax simplification. He has become a contracting guru influencing a new generation of contractors through, the Contractors’ Handbook, regular participation in industry-shaping round-table events, as well as his lectures and presentations on successful contracting.
