We’re proud to announce that we’ve claimed victory in two prominent categories at The Contracting Awards: Best Umbrella Company (over 1,500 clients) for the third consecutive year and Best Contractor Accountancy (over 2,500 clients) for the third time overall, beating 13 other providers in the process. This achievement is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence in providing outstanding service to contractors.

This award demonstrates our ability to provide our umbrella employees with a seamless and hassle-free experience, ensuring they are paid accurately and on time, every time.
