Two thirds (68%) of UK freelancers and contractors take less holiday than the average full-time UK employee entitlement of 28 days. Research by Qdos Contractor, the contractor tax adviser of The Qdos Group, shows that only 32% of freelancers and contractors take 22 days or more holiday annually. A separate survey by Reportlinker shows that freelancers have more pressing concerns than holiday entitlement. These include lack of retirement benefits (cited by 27%), low financial security (19%) and lack of job security (18%).
