..but you won't get employer pension contributions from anyone but your own client...

Oops.. That should have been 'from your own company', ie from what your company invoices/revenues. To me, that was one of the biggest benefits of running my own business. My work is project based, and when I was an FTE, ended up only working for a couple of years before changing jobs. Which meant collecting stranded pensions that new employers wouldn't contribute towards. To me, that was a significant benefit, and also a big problem with the pension industry, along with the downside of government policy. So tax/pension rule changes and NHS consultants as an example.
