My Max
Umbrella company

The award winning Umbrella that covers it all

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 who thinks they'll be affected by the April 2021 off-payroll working legislation, look no further than PayStream for a reliable, award winning umbrella service. We process thousands of payments each week and have already helped hundreds of limited company contractors make the move to My Max.
