Why You Should Consider Using Umbrella PAYE

If you are just starting as a contractor, are caught by IR35 or prefer a more hands-off approach to payroll, working via an umbrella company offers a low-risk solution.

The benefit of umbrella companies is that they can be used for any industry, contract role or level of experience and there is very little ongoing admin required. The umbrella company will take care of your invoicing and payroll; all you need to do is send us your signed timesheets (and expense information if agreed by your agency).

Umbrella companies also offer the perfect payroll solution if you are working on multiple contracts alongside each other as it gives you continuity of employment. When you use an umbrella company they are seen as your employers, so your tax code won’t be negatively affected and you won’t be overtaxed.

Easy Setup, Fast Payroll, Peace of Mind

Setting up with Umbrella Company UK couldn’t be easier. Registering with us is quick and you can be set up in minutes over the phone or by completing the short registration form on our website.

We use same-day Faster Payments which means as soon as we receive funds from your agency or end client, we will pay you the same day.

The best part – you get peace of mind. We are proudly accredited and audited by Professional Passport who works closely with HMRC and industry trade bodies to ensure the payroll service we offer meets their compliance standards.
