Why IT Contractors Need a PAYE Umbrella Company

Processing contractor payroll and making the correct tax deductions can be time-consuming and confusing for your agency or end client company, which could then affect when you are paid as well as your tax affairs. This situation is where our PAYE umbrella payroll company can employ you and make your life easier.

Our umbrella payroll company sits between you (the IT contractor), and your recruitment agency or client company to process your payroll compliantly, so you and your agency or client never have to get involved with payroll admin. As your employer, we manage your payments, tax deductions, pension contributions, holiday pay and other deductions required by the PAYE payment method. Our employment contract is overarching, so you can complete as many IT work assignments as you want while always being paid through our compliant payroll service.
