Payroll Provider for Contractors

Umbrella Company UK is a PAYE umbrella company backed by over 20 years’ experience in contractor payroll. Umbrella Company UK was founded to meet the growing demand for compliant and reliable payroll providers to support contractors and freelancers in the UK. Our compliance with HMRC’s rules and regulations is second to none, and you can rest assured that you will never receive a sudden tax bill when you use Umbrella Company UK.

Our umbrella service is simple, straightforward and by far the easiest way to get paid whether you are a first time contractor, a short-term contractor or if you may be caught by changing IR35 legislation.

As an employee of Umbrella Company UK, you get access to a dedicated Account Manager to provide ongoing support and answers to any payroll queries you may have. You will also have access to the Umbrella Company UK app for free, where you can view and manage your contracts, log your hours and view your payslips.
