Employment status

If you chose our umbrella service you will enter into a formal employment contract with us.  You are therefore a permanent employee of Umbrella-Company Ltd.  This gives you the benefit of full employment rights which with us.

Once we have made the last payment for you can request your P45.  If you have not been paid for 2 calendar months, we will automatically issue you a P45 to end your formal employment with us.  This ensures that you do not experience any tax difficulties with future employers.

We issue P45s once a week so there should be no delay in you receiving it once we have processed your last payment.  HMRC only allow a P45 to be sent by post and not electronically.  We cannot issue replacement copies so it is important that you give us your correct postal address.
