Contractors' Handbook: The expert guide for UK contractors and freelancers

Dave Chaplin, the founder of Byte-Vision Ltd, has lived and breathed contracting since he first took the plunge and 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 like HSBC, Merrill Lynch, Cable and Wireless, and many others.

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; and through bright periods of plenty and gloomy times of belt-tightening recession. He founded the popular contractor website, ContractorCalculator, and has been its full-time CEO since 2004.

In Dec 2008 Dave published the Contractors' Handbook : The expert guide for contractors and freelancers.
