Approved Umbrella Companies
As a Contractor with us, you’ll have the choice of two contract methods:
1. Enter into an agreement with one of our approved 'umbrella companies'.
2. Set yourself up as a UK limited company and ensure you’re listed as the Director and are in sole financial control of the company.
By joining an umbrella company, you’re essentially taken on as an employee where you can gain employment rights and minimise your administrative tasks. This is ideal for those who work on short-term projects or on a series of short assignments and incur business expenses during their work.
Following an in-depth compliance and customer service review process, we have selected the companies listed as our approved umbrella company suppliers. All of our umbrella approved supplier companies have preferred payment terms including payment within 7 days of an invoice being raised.
Alternatively, you can contract or freelance via your own UK Limited Company. This offers greater flexibility and additional tax benefits but means you take greater responsibility for your accounts. If you are trading as a UK Limited Company, invoices raised against an approved timesheet will be paid to 28-day payment terms.
