About Us

Crest Plus has traded successfully for over 21 years and is a very highly respected brand particularly within its specialist sectors of construction, engineering, health and social care.

We are a financially strong business with a healthy balance sheet and a long stable history. 

We are , therefore, increasingly the partner of choice for hundreds of both blue-chip and smaller owner-managed recruitment businesses.

We have paid hundreds of thousands of contractors throughout the UK who have trusted Crest Plus to take care of employment status and tax compliance issues, and get them paid on time, every time, every week.

Crest Plus have one of the most settled and experienced back office teams in any sector including relevant qualified professionals, so our knowledge, customer service and experience to support both contractors and recruiters in a continually evolving legislative environment are second-to-none.

Contracting Solutions

We take pride in providing specialist proactive support to all types of contractors whether:

  • Self-employed, inside or outside of construction (CIS) or;
  • Required to contract under PAYE as an employee of an umbrella company.

Recruitment businesses

Crest Plus provide a first-class service to all of our recruitment business clients, priding ourselves in offering a proactive added value, consultative approach, tailored to each recruitment agency.

At a time when determining employment status is more important than ever, you can be assured our contractors can only be assessed for a self-employment solution if the relevant recruitment agency approved person has communicated this as a suitable option.  We then undertake our compliant contractor status assessment which enables both parties to determine the most suitable contracting option.

Excellent contractor benefits

Our Crest Plus Advantage scheme offers the best contractor benefits in our sector, and moving forward we continue to strive to offer more and more useful and attractive benefits to our contractors, whether employed or self-employed, including the following:

  • Personal Accident cover both at work and during the commute to and from work;
  • Selected partner benefits, for example, our popular B&Q/TradePoint discount card;
  • High street shopping discounts, e.g. Tesco, Waitrose, M&S, Currys, Argos;
  • Travel and leisure discounts, e.g. Amazon, Vue, Sky, Virgin, TUI;
  • Mental Health and Well-being support;
  • Discounted self-assessment tax return support.


Crest Plus’s values are at the core of everything we do and we believe this sets us apart from others:

  • Keep it simple.
  • Never to be complacent.
  • Do the right thing.
  • We, not I.
  • Right first time.
  • Be adaptable.

If you are a recruitment business looking for a professional long-established and trustworthy partner or an individual new to contracting who would like to discuss your options, or indeed if you have been contracting for a while and feel you would benefit from our additional support, please get in touch with a member of our friendly expert team. We will be more than happy to help you.
