Umbrella Companies

Umbrella Companies

The Off Payroll reforms in the private sector have been rescheduled to come in to play in April 2021.If you are operating through a limited company check now if you’re going to be able to continue to operate through it or whether or not it will be more commercially viable to use an Umbrella Company. We can discuss with you the services available and umbrella companies that can be the best fit for your circumstances moving forward.

Limited Companies

Limited Companies are still viable for highly skilled contractors who can demonstrate they are not supervised, directed or controlled in what they do at the client’s site. Our partners can take the heat off your administration duties. They can guide and prompt you to ensure that you comply with company law and Reporting requirements so you can focus on your contracting.

Personal Tax Services

Every year hundreds and thousands of contractors miss their tax return deadlines because they haven’t had the time to review their finances or simply don’t know where to start to find the information they need to complete their return on time. We work with partners specialised in helping contractors identify what they need to complete their return and help them to complete it in time for the deadline. We also have partners that can help you if you are undergoing a HMRC enquiry into your affairs. This can be very stressful and having the right support can alleviate that pressure and allow you to focus on your contracting.


If it’s time to step off the rental ladder and take the plunge with buying a home that’s your own then you will find that due to your status of not being a full time employee lending options are virtually non-existent. We work with contractor mortgage specialists who can advise you on lenders and the best way about borrowing money to fund your new home.
