    Default Recommendation Please

    Hi all, I am new to this and need to set myself with an umbrella company for approximately 3 months - may be longer not sure yet. Can anybody please recommend a company who I can contact as there seems to be so many and the jargon is well jargon to me.

    Also how does going though an umbrella company affect working tax credits?

    Any recommendations, advice or suggestions would be gratefully received.

    Many thanks, Amelia

    I've never used them, but that's where I'd start.

    I have and they were very good so quite happy to recommend them.

    Are you through and agency and if so are they OK using one of your choice? Many will present a list of 'partners' and can be very inflexible.

    Thanks All

    Hi Mellie Kittens, happy to talk you through things without the jargon! With regards to working tax credit, it works in exactly the same way as PAYE employment would as you are deemed an employee of the umbrella.
    Just watching what I say

    We now offer Ltd too, so if you need a company that you can switch between Ltd & Umbrella, just shout!
