Fast Track 100

Contractors looking to escape the burden of administering tax, national insurance and pensions may come to this Blackpool company for help. Danbro says it acts as an umbrella company for some 1,500 contractors, who use its services in place of establishing their own limited companies. It also offers accounting services to nearly 800 limited companies. Founded by Damian and Helen Broughton in 2000, the firm has a growing list of IT clients that have helped to boost sales 96% a year from £4.7m in 2005 to £34.9m in 2008 (sales here are the total amount invoiced on behalf of contractors plus Danbro’s fees).
