The sign-up process is very straightforward and there is no joining or leaving fees when you choose us as your provider. When you sign up with Umbrella Company UK you will become an employee of ours and we will pay your salary via PAYE (Pay As You Earn).

How Does An Umbrella Company Work?

Using an umbrella company for your payroll is very straightforward. Once you’ve registered for our umbrella service, the process of getting forward is simple:

  1. Complete your timesheets and send them to your agency: to reflect the hours you worked as a contractor, complete your timesheets for the required period and send them to your recruitment agency for sign off.
  2. Send your timesheets to Umbrella Company UK: once your agency has signed off on your timesheets, send them to Umbrella Company UK.
  3. We’ll invoice your agency – and they will pay us: when we have all the required information, we’ll invoice your agency for your wages. The agency will then send us the funds for payroll processing.
  4. We’ll process your payroll: our payroll team handles all the required tax, NI and Apprenticeship Levy deductions on your behalf in-line with HMRC regulations.
  5. You get paid: once your payroll is processed, we pay you to your personal account. We’ll send off all tax and NI deductions to HMRC on your behalf.
