Umbrella Companies

For contractors who are unable to or do not wish to run a limited company, umbrella companies provide a convenient alternative. Umbrella companies will organise the paperwork on behalf of contractors, who effectively become PAYE employees again, and they will also take responsibility for invoicing, collection of money due and payments to each contractor. Leaving the day-to-day administration to the umbrella company is a big benefit for many contractors.  For more information have a look at our guide on contracting via an umbrella company or contact the trusted providers on our Umbrella Company directory.
