Employment Status

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...]

Introducing ipaye

Not all Umbrellas are the same, see how we are different

If you are looking for an Umbrella Service Provider that actually listens to its clients and what the contracting industry are telling us, then please read on.

i-Paye understands the uniqueness of each individual's circumstances and has tailored three services for individuals working in the United Kingdom, fees are charged based upon what you want not what can be cheaply added to the package.

We believe that the way i-Paye charges for its services will become the industry standard and as such quite revolutionary.

All Umbrella Companies should...

  1. Raise invoices to your client on time every time.
  2. Process Expense Claims and verify them against HMRC Guidance.
  3. Send your payments to clear by the latest the close of business on the day of receipt, free of charge, or alternatively you should have cleared funds by 9am on that day.
  4. Pay you when they receive funds whether weekly or monthly, even fortnightly.
  5. Send you a payslip.
  6. Give you the option to accrue your holiday entitlement, not insist it is paid out automatically.
  7. Provide a key point of contact for all your contract and payroll queries.
  8. Cover you and third parties under their Comprehensive Insurance Package
  9. Cover your work under their Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  10. Cover you whether you are onshore or offshore.

i-Paye does as standard.

Umbrella Compare Review of ipaye

i-Paye has a fast growing reputation for excellent customer service. Our mystery-shopper was unable to find any weaknesses during our dummy registration call.

i-Paye had answers to all our questions and treated us with respect and professionalism throughout the call.

The insurance levels are not that high so some contractors may have to top-up the levels at additional cost. Processing systems are all automated and customers should not find any complaints.

Price is within an acceptable range of industry comparisons.

It's the basics... Compliance with Tax, VAT, PAYE and fiscal arrangements is mandatory for contractors regardless of whether you use an umbrella company or your own limited company.
