Forum: Umbrella Companies

All about umbrella companies.

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Don't be fooled by imposter umbrella companies

    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...

  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: Everything you ever wanted to know about umbrella companies but were afraid to ask...

    There have been so many questions by new contractors about umbrella companies and the way that they work that I thought I would put together a help guide.

  5. 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,...

    Hi Everyone, We are asked about umbrella company dispensations almost every day so I thought I would add something here to try and help clarify the situation. All umbrella companies have dispensations - if we didn't we would spend all our time filling in forms for the Inland Revenue :( ...

  7. 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...
