Are you a contractor? If you work for someone else, it is important to know whether you are working for that person in an employed capacity or in a self-employed capacity as an independent contractor.

Backoffice offer a wide variety of services. They are slightly different to other Umbrella companies as they run payroll for some top high street agencies and as the name suggests they offer back office support. Their website is smart and clear, but only offers a small amount of information on their Umbrella option. The sales representatives are well trained and have plent to say. Backoffice do have a dispensation, but choose to ask to see all receipts, so they can check their contractors are claiming correctly. Backoffice will give it to you straight and they will tell you if there is no benefit in going with them compared to going PAYE through your agency.
