    Default Please help me choose an umbrella company

    Hi all

    After a lot of interviews, finally bagged my first contracting gig! Only problem is that I have to choose from their list of umbrella companies (I was going to sign on with Contractor Umbrella as they seem to be popular on this board)

    Can anyone recommend any of the following:

    Brookson Solutions
    Danbro
    I-Paye
    JSA Services
    Nasa Umbrella
    Orange Genie Cover
    Parasol
    Paystream My Max
    RACS Collective
    Umbrella-Company

    I only want to submit timesheets, not planning on claiming expenses (mainly due to not knowing I can actually claim for)

    Many thanks

    Are the agency refusing to deal with them? It's likely that's due to agents getting a kick back from the ones on the list. Personally I'd have a chat to Lisa about it, she maybe familiar with the agent and have other people, and then stick it to the agent. If they want your business they will have to just do without a kickback. Should be a no brainer for them tbh. Standing up to them is most likely going to get the result you want.

    Some specialist contractor Accountancy firms are running an Umbrella company also, and offering a flexible solution in terms of switching between a PSC and an Umbrella company, without naming any names...

    It's Capita that I've got the contract with and I've already asked them if I can use someone not on the list

    I don't want to rock the boat seeing as it's my first contract..

    Hmm Capita. Yes, your right, you are stuck with the ones on their PS I am afraid.

    I can't help but I recognise a number of those names from previous threads so I'd suggest you try a forum search for.some of them and see the feedback.

    How to do that is here...

    Ask an Umbrella Company - All Umbrella Companies Are Equal

    Might give I-Paye a ring seeing as they're high up on the list and it's a Liverpool number

    Feel free to ring in and ask for me, I would be happy to help. If I'm not about ask for my colleague on the UK Team, Nicola.

    You've have to go against your better instincts and be nicer to Capita.
