I have worked via my own ltd company in the private sector for the past few years. Am now looking into my first public sector contract and have been told that the client requires contractors to use an umbrella company, not ltd.
The recruitmemt team have put me in touch with their partnered umbrella firm but have said its my choice.
My question is, can a client really force me to only use an umbrella company? If so, i might have to rethink given the impact.
