During cold and flu season, you know what you need to do to remain healthy. And you probably know what to do to once you realize you’ve got all the telltale symptoms of coming down with a bug.  But how do you know if your independent consulting or freelancing business is healthy?  Do you know what “symptoms” to watch out for?

Take the IC Health Checkup Quiz to get a quick read on the health of your small business:

 Do clients ever try to engage you as a W2 contractor?

 Do your interactions with clients ever make you feel more like an employee than an independent contractor?

 Do you rely on your client’s insurance to protect your business; or alternatively, do you conduct your business without adequate insurance coverage?

 Are you tired of submitting the same documentation and answering the same IC compliance screening questions every time you start a new project?

 Do you wish there was a way to prove your Independent Contractor qualifications once-and-for-all and start projects faster and without all the hassle?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then our diagnosis is that your small business is a bit under the weather and most-likely your independence is suffering. IC Precheck has just the cure for what ails you. 

IC Precheck is a compliance certification and due diligence documentation service that works for you. When you bid for new work or start a new project, just tell them you are IC Prechecked and we’ll take it from there. We send your Independent Contractor qualifications and documentation package to prospects and clients on your behalf, so you don’t have to. And if there are any questions about your qualifications as an Independent Contractor, we’ve got you covered. Your IC Precheck certification and due diligence package was specially designed by industry veterans to align with your customers’ concerns about IC misclassification risk and their expectations on how to mitigate that risk:

  1. Documented evidence that you will meet state and federal regulatory criteria for Independent Contractor status, plus
  2. Due diligence documentation (i.e. background check clearance, proof of good standing, business licenses and more) required by their internal vendor or supplier management policy. 

The IC Precheck service is even used and accepted by the third-party IC compliance providers that often support your clients. Why? Because they know the IC Precheck package shaves up to 80% off the time it takes to screen and on board a new IC (aka 1099 contractor). That’s a big benefit for you, too, because you can start billing, uh, er working faster. 

Differentiating yourself as a certified IC is a key to unlocking doors that will win you more work.  But if you’re still thinking of excuses why you don’t have the time to get certified, consider this: 

If you earn between $50,000 - $150,000 per year, then the cost of IC certification is less than ½ of 1 percent of your annual earnings. Isn't certifying your independence, seizing control of your business, and positioning yourself to win more work worth at least that much?!
