What we do

Working together with recruitment agencies we help contractors make the right commercial decisions to suit their busy lifestyles and careers. You may have never heard of an umbrella company or thought about the need for a limited company. You simply want to work on assignments that suit you; the paperwork and finances are something that you thought would be handled by your recruitment agency. The downside of taking the step to work flexibly brings more responsibility at your doorstep. There is only so much your recruitment agency can do. That’s where we step in. We trawl the market to identify good, supportive companies that can assist you, whether or not you are new to contracting, already contracting or needing a specific service to enhance what you already have.

We know how the contractor market ticks, what’s trending, which providers are offering the best value and service, and how legislation changes can have a knock on effect on you. Bringing together an extensive range of service options, including umbrella companies, contractor accountants, insurance brokers and mortgage lenders, we can present you with the best providers and even help you deal with the transition from your current set up.

Is Umbrella Exchange right for you?

Yes, we are pretty sure it is. By being at the forefront of the UK contracting market, we have extensive experience and knowledge to know a good deal and what will work for individual circumstances.

So if you are working on assignment in the public service sector then we won’t waste your time discussing accountancy solution but can help you choose an umbrella company. If you are an IT contractor who has had a brush with IR35, or the newer SDC legislation, then we’ll look at how a contract review service can be beneficial as part of an accountancy package. Although our name is Umbrella Exchange, it’s not just umbrella companies we can help you source.

Whether you describe yourself as a professional contractor, consultant, like to just dabble in project work from time to time or are the MD of a multi-sector recruitment firm, we at Umbrella Exchange think we have some really great options and would like to do business with you.
