Construction Payroll | Accountancy Partners


What is an Umbrella Company?

An umbrella company allows temporary contractors and freelancers to work multiple assignments through multiple agencies, whilst having a single employer.

Being paid through an umbrella company can have many benefits, from ensuring a consistency of PAYE tax deductions, to building a solid employment history whilst providing total peace of mind. This continuity of employment and financial stability for the worker can often lead to improved success with mortgage and other credit applications.

We take full responsibility for paying contractors a salary, providing full comprehensive PL & PI insurance along with paying all tax and national insurance liabilities to HMRC every week.
