  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Should I trade as a Limited Company, umbrella or composite

    Hi everyone, Can't help but notice that there are many posts on here that ask the same question - should I use an umbrella or my own Ltd Company. Thought it might be useful to summarise once and for all the pros and cons of each method and how much you would be likely to take home. Might save...

    I've decided to repost this following a couple of sad posts regarding HMRC Enquiries on umbrellas that were not what they seemed. As the latest umbrella company (Compusource) hits the buffers with contractor's money, I thought I'd remind people what 'due diligence' is all about. It's all...

  6. Sticky Thread Sticky: Umbrella companies 'expenses policy' changed

    We have had a great deal of enquiries lately about umbrella companies 'expenses policies' changing so I thought I would offer a little clarification. Umbrella companies do not really have an 'expenses policy' as they can only process those expenses that will be allowed under HMR&C guidelines,...
