umbrella company

Despite recent legislative changes that affect your recruitment agency, umbrella companies still represent the most suitable employment and payroll solution for the majority of UK and EU based contractors, freelancers and consultants.

Working through an Umbrella Company is often the easiest option. It makes your Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance (NI) deductions for you, and allows you to maximise the amount you take home by offsetting expenses like travel, accommodation and meals against tax.

what is an umbrella company?

Umbrella Companies are not a new idea. Indeed they have been around for a number of years, but they came into their own after the 2007 budget and the subsequent "Tackling Managed Service Companies" legislation that came with it.

Before the 2007 budget umbrella companies could be mistaken as being a similar structure to either the old composite company or single person company structures, but the modern (post 2007) umbrella company when done correctly is a very different creature. Legally, umbrella companies now are much more complex than their predecessors and when set up properly they become a very tight and compliant way to be paid.
