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.
Your employment status will determine the charge to tax on income from your employment or self-employment. It will also determine the class of NICs, which are to be paid.
Umbrella Companies employ you for tax purposes and complete central returns for all their contractors. It's less hassle and more flexible for you but take home pay is typically less than that the limited company option.
The best option for you depends on your plans, 'one off' contract or 'contractor for life'? [Read More...]

Welcome to Priory Contractors
Priory Contractors are an Umbrella company offering an extremely efficient way to maximise Contractors earnings without the hassle of running their own Limited Company!
The Services we offer are 100% HMRC Compliant which gives the Contractor the confidence they are maximising their take home pay through working compliantly with the current Government legislation!
IR35, the diminished benefits of running Limited Companies, the headache of paperwork and accountancy fees are just a few of the reasons why Contractors have decided they best way of working is through an Umbrella Company. At Priory Contractors we take the responsibility for all Payroll administration including tax, expenses and National Insurance Contributions giving the contractor the opportunity to spend more time doing the things they want with more money to do so.
Established in 2006, Priory Contractors is recognised as the first choice amongst many Agencies when recommending an Umbrella Service provider. Our extensive knowledge of the temporary worker, freelance and contractor market allows us to confidently advise our clients on how to become as tax efficient as possible.
As a leading Umbrella Solution we look after contractors all over the UK across various business sectors including Driving, Media, Industrial and Warehouse, Telecom's, Medical, Teaching, Public Sector, I.T. and Security from our Head office in Rugeley, Staffordshire.
The financial benefits of Contracting are highly attractive, but there are many pitfalls where the contractor could fall victim. Therefore every contractor that signs up will be allocated their own dedicated Relationship Manager that will answer any questions, explain procedures, advise on how to maximise their income and most importantly make sure that each and every payroll is paid efficiently and within HMRC guidelines.
The relationship Manager will make sure that each and every contract is set up quickly and easily. They will explain what paperwork is required, when it is required and who requires it. They will liaise with the Agency and where possible implement their systems, which will avoid any additional paperwork and unnecessary time wasting.
We provide competitive Management fees based on a capped percentage fee, please click here to see our fees. There are no joining or (should it be necessary) leaving fees, nor do we charge additional fees for expenses. We also ensure that any Statutory Sick Pay or Statutory Paternity / Maternity / Adoption pay that the Contractor is entitled is paid.
We have approved dispensations from HMRC allowing the Contractor to claim up to specified limits without the need to submit a receipt (this does not exempt the Contractor from retaining their receipts for Income Tax purposes). These will be monitored by the Relationship Manager to ensure that every expense claim remains compliant and there is no comeback on the Contractor.
