How does an umbrella company work?

In truth, umbrella companies are really straightforward. When you register with us, you effectively become our employee and we pay your salary (PAYE) and charge a small weekly margin for our service. There is no tie in period and you are free to leave us as you please. You will only pay our small margin for the weeks we pay you. There are also no joining or leaving fees.

Once you have completed the registration form and provided us with proof of ID and a signed contract (you’ll be sent this soon after registering), you will need to complete timesheets and send signed copies to us and your agency. We will then invoice your agency for the amount you have earned and will then process your pay by deducting the relevant tax and National Insurance Contributions (NICs).

It really is that simple! We will pay you your salary in accordance with the schedule you have agreed with your recruitment agency.
