What’s an umbrella company?

An umbrella company is an 'employment intermediary' - a company that becomes your employer for employment rights and taxation purposes. Tax and NIC is deducted from your payments before you receive them, so there is no need to submit self-assessment tax returns. Business expenses may be payable depending on your terms and conditions.

The key advantage that contractors find from working under our umbrella company is that the administration is made easy. There are no tax returns to submit, no paperwork has to be filed with Companies House and we deal with chasing up any unpaid invoices with your clients. This means that you have more time to focus on working and so can potentially earn more money. Working under an umbrella company also means that you as a contractor are not affected by IR35.


Our standard gross fee is £24 per week, regardless of your earnings. You simply won’t find a cheaper price from a leading provider, for the level of service we offer.

There are absolutely no other charges – whatsoever.
