How Much Will I Take Home?

An umbrella employee you may be able to claim allowable expenses while working on a temporary site. The range of legitimate expenses can include things like travel and meal costs while traveling between locations, as well as hotel bills for when you are working away.

  • I have recently started locum work and Umbrella was a recommendation from Liquid Personnel. The ease that this has given me in terms of managing my salary has been a 5* service. Robert Charlton and customer services could not have supported me any better. They are responsive to my queries and nothing is ever a problem. Robert particularly will take time out of his working day to support me at a drop of a hat. So far it has been a fabulous service and I would recommend to anyone moving to locum work.

  • Detailed service, easy registration, well trained and experienced friendly staff. Calling round for quotations, I've spoken with at least 5/6 different umbrella companies. The agent I spoke with here at umbrella.co.uk was impeccable at explaining how the service works. And whilst I won't mention other companies I've contacted, I can say Robert was more detailed and knew the answers to all of my questions. Which has left me feeling confident to entrust umbrella.co.uk with my wages! Once everything was explained, the registration process couldn't have been any easier/quicker. All supporting documentation was provided, along with links to HMRC where all information provided by Robert could easily be verified. Thank youFrank April 2022
