In the UK, an umbrella company directly employs contractors and freelancers who wish to work inside the IR35 regulations. Generally, an umbrella company's services are administrative and accountancy-based - such as managing timesheets, calculating PAYE tax and NI contributions, invoicing the client, collecting monies and paying the contractor.

An umbrella service is the perfect solution for you and your contractors, and here's why...

  • Fast set up - your contractors can be joined online, in under 10 minutes.
  • Simple and easy to use - where your contractors are not subject to Supervision, Direction or Control they can claim any allowable Travel expenses online or via a mobile app.

  • Hassle free - we send you auto-emails regarding the status of your contractor, so you spend less time chasing us and more time placing that next candidate.

  • Our focus on compliance keeps you and your contractors safe.
