    I need a view on these companies. I am planning to go for umbrella services, although it will significantly reduce my monthly take home amount, but I have no idea about the difficulties i might face if I choose to LLC. my assignment is for 6 months only. My agency recommended these companies to work with. Anyone has any experience using these companies services before ?

    About the only umbrella that has a good name on here is Contractor Umbrella.
    You can take a look here at some others:

    Be very careful if they insist you use a specific umbrella. It probably means they are getting a kick back.

    As WTFH says, use Contractor Umbrella.

    Hi aeroeng, if the agency will use people off the list, then please do give me a shout, dependent on who they are I may be able to help anyway
    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!

    What does fcsa accredited mean? EY are a firm of auditors/ accounts / consultancy / cowboys which part are auditing your processors and what does Hmrc transparency mean?

    Not being awkward here but I know contractor umbrella and can easily speak to the management there.

    As for the original list my question would be how come they are on the list and not other umbrellas. Followed by how much am I paying via the umbrella back to the agency (either directly via a referral fee or indirectly via an annual fee) for the right to use them?
