What is an Umbrella Company
As an umbrella company, Umbrella.co.uk is an organisation that employs temporary workers and enables them to carry out a number of short-term contracts for agencies and end-clients.
For a flat weekly margin we will take care of your payroll and other administration, leaving you with more time to concentrate on the work that really matters.

At Umbrella.co.uk we provide our employees with a number of important services, including:
- Collecting payments from agencies on your behalf
- Helping you claim allowable business expenses
- Processing your payslip and making sure you get paid on time
- Keeping you compliant with the latest tax regulation updates and the HMRC
- Umbrella employees can come from a broad range of sectors including:
- IT and telecoms
- Health and social care
Why have I been referred here by an employment agency?
Many employment agencies like to use professional services companies like Umbrella.co.uk because it makes it easier to manage temporary workers.
If you’ve been referred to us by an agency, then we will be acting as an intermediary between you and the agency (as well as any end-clients). Once you’ve carried out work for an agency and filed your hours, we will bill them on your behalf. We’ll deduct the tax and other costs, passing the remainder on to you.
Alternatives to umbrella contracting
Umbrella companies are great for contractors who want to have a fully managed risk free payroll solution. But it’s not the best choice for everyone. If you choose to operate as a limited company, for example, then you might be able to take advantage of more generous tax arrangements to boost your take home pay. Find out more.
