account | consult | reward

This change has been made to reflect that we offer more than just a contractor umbrella company or limited company accountancy services to contractors and freelancers.

Although that is still the core of our business and a major part of what we are we also offer:

  • cloud accounting services to small/medium sized businesses and the self–employed;
  • payroll services to recruitment agencies;
  • umbrella rewards for discounts at high street outlet;
  • taxation service
  • Insolvency advice
  • and consultation services.

We recently launched a number of new services including a tax reclaim service, and Umbrella Insolvency.

Umbrella Insolvency will offer Corporate Rescue Services to business and Umbrella IVA to individuals.

Umbrella IVA will help individuals struggling with personal debts such as bank loans, overdrafts and credit cards.

An IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) usually means that if you are unable to meet your debt repayments in full your position can be renegotiated so that you pay what you can afford for 5 years and after that time the remainder of your debt is written-off. In most cases this can lead to a significant proportion of your debt being written-off. Once agreed this agreement is legally binding and stops creditors chasing you for payment or applying interest and charges.

It is also better for your creditors in that they will receive more than if you took the step to become bankrupt.

Our Insolvency team include Thomas Fox LLB MIPA, our in-house Insolvency Practitioner and Sarah Longsdale CertDr, Insolvency Manager. Sarah is a previous winner of the Debt Resolution Forum (DRF), Advisor of the Year.

Miles Grady BA Econ (Hons) ACA, Director of Umbrella says “Our plan when we acquired the domain name,, was to evolve into a firm of accountants that would become a one stop provider for clients to find a number of financial services under the one umbrella. The additional services we offer fit well with the cloud accounting, payroll and contractor services we currently offer. We have a number of key staff who have considerable experience in offering these additional financial services. My own background includes experience in Accountancy & Insolvency at KPMG, Mazars and being co-founder of one of the UK’s largest IVA businesses, One Advice”.
