Umbrella Compare Review of Smart Tax

Smart Tax umbrella company are compliant and run a standard compliant PAYE umbrella company service.

Their customer service team were unflappable when dealing with our particularly annoying myster-shopper who feigned the ability to grasp the most basic explanations.

The price is at the upper end of our 'acceptable' range, and the inclusive insurances may not be sufficient for all assignments - so check your contract details.
