It’s World Mental Health Day on 10th October. We’d like to take the opportunity to remind our contractor customers that you have access to a free professional counselling service with Umbrella Rewards. If you are affected by mental or emotional strain, especially in these difficult times, login to the Umbrella Rewards Customer Portal and visit the 'Care & Support' area.
A controversial set of changes to off-payroll working (IR35) rules is due to take effect in the Private Sector from next April.
For contractors, the next few months represent a crucial period in which to prepare for the changes and minimise the financial impact of the tax changes.
To help you get ready for the April 2021 IR35 reforms, we have published a brief guide with only the key facts that you need to know about.
Congratulations to Hannah Kelman on winning Umbrella.co.uk September Employee of the Month.
