An umbrella company is a business that employs professional contractors carrying out short-term assignments for recruitment agencies and / or end clients.
The umbrella company makes your Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance deductions for you, ensuring that you pay the right amount of tax.
Using an umbrella service gives you legal employee status and handles all the paperwork. It’s the simplest solution for most contractors, with no unexpected tax bills.
