An umbrella company is the simplest way to get paid for most contractors. The umbrella employs contractors carrying out short-term assignments and makes Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance contributions - so no unexpected tax bills.
You get a consistent employment record (handy for mortgage and loan applications) and access to entitlements like a workplace pension, holiday pay and maternity / paternity pay. In short, all the benefits of continuous employment as a contractor, without the admin of running your own limited company.
So, whether you're new to contracting and looking for the simplest way to get paid, or are a limited company contractor that's been affected by the April 2021 off-payroll working legislation, look no further than PayStream for a reliable, FCSA Accredited umbrella company. We process thousands of payments each week and have already helped thousands of limited company contractors make the move to My Max.
