It's important that you send us the correct Right to Work documentation

Before Umbrella Company UK can officially welcome you to our payroll service, we require specific Right to Work documentation. This is a government requirement.

Please read the following information carefully regarding Right to Work documentation and what we require from you.

Failure to provide us with acceptable versions of your Right to Work documentation will result in a delay in your payments.

To submit your Right to Work Documents, please complete our Upload Documents form. This form will require you to upload photographs/scanned versions of your identification, Right to Work, and a P45 (or Starter Checklist). All of the information you need is on the page. If you require any further assistance, please email onboarding@umbrellacompanyuk.co.uk or call 01707 669020.

What documentation can we accept for right to work checks?

We can accept the following as proof of right to work:

  • UK Passport
  • EU/ EEA Passport – after the 30th June 2021 we can’t accept a EU/EEA passport without a Settled Status
  • Settled Status 9 Digit Share Code, for example: A12 345 67G
  • Non-UK Passport and Biometric Residence Permit
  • Birth Certificate (British Long Version) – If you choose to upload a Birth Certificate (British Long Version) to prove your identity or Right to Work (RTW), we require an NI document as well. This can be either a photograph or scanned copy of your National Insurance card, or an official document that states your National Insurance number – issued by a government agency or previous employer.

It's important that you send us the correct Right to Work documentation

  • We cannot accept a driving license as proof of right to work. We can only accept the documents listed above.
  • We can only accept photographs and scanned versions of your documents. We cannot accept photocopies.
  • When you send in photographs/scanned versions of Right to Work documents – we must be able to see all 4 corners of the relevant document/page.
  • Photograph or scan quality must be high, and we must be able to read all of the text on the documents you submit clearly. If a photograph/scanned document is poor quality or difficult to read, you will need to resubmit these document again.
  • If the document you are sending to us is double-sided – we must have copies of both sides. Therefore, you will need to send us two files for that specific Right to Work document – the front and the back. For example, if you are uploading a Biometric Residence Permit, we require a clear photograph of the front, and a clear photograph of the back.

Examples

The following examples are of documents that we can and cannot accept as proof of Right to Work in the UK.

Residence Permit

If you are providing us with your Residence Permit – we require a clear photograph or scanned version of both the front and the back. The example above is what we require. Make sure when you send us your Residence Permit that we can see all 4 corners of both the front and the back.

We cannot accept versions of your Residence Permit if they look like the above examples. The example on the left is not acceptable because it does not show the 4 corners of the permit. The example on the right is not acceptable because it doesn’t show us the 4 corners of the back of the permit, and it is burry (poor quality).

Passport

Here are 2 examples of passports. The example on the left is perfect because we can see the 4 corners of the identification page, and the information is easy to read (the file is high quality). The example on the right is a bad example and cannot be accepted by Umbrella Company UK. We cannot see each of the 4 corners of the passport identification page.
