COVID-19 Update

All systems are operational! Our staff are currently working from home and have complete access to email, phone, and all client data. While this method of working is not what we are used to, we have the necessary software and systems in place. We are here to help, so please continue to contact us in the normal way ... just be aware that with phone conversations there may be the odd background interruption :)


Contracting through our PAYE umbrella is the fastest route to contracting. The set-up is very quick, you have no accounting, tax, or IR35 concerns - you simply get yourself out of bed, into work, and get paid.

Real expertise

We have been dealing with contractors since 2005 and our office is full of skilled, hard-working payroll, tax, and accounting experts.

Quick pay

We run a payroll every day, meaning the day we get paid by your agency/client is also the day you get paid. Our Faster Payments service is standard so in most cases funds will clear into your personal bank account almost instantly.


Our online system is open 24/7 for your timesheets, and expense claims. Nothing could be easier.

Hide nothing

Our fixed fees are fully inclusive of contractor insurance, expense processing, and credit control. We have no minimum contract period, and there are no set-up or exit costs.

Instant txt

We'll send you a text message as soon as we have paid you.


You will be included in the No Worries Red Umbrella group insurance policy at no extra cost with: £10m of Employers Liability, £5 million of Public Liability, £5 million of Professional Indemnity

Prices and Packages

We operate one simple package designed to fit your contracting life.

Classic Umbrella

Get set-up with your online portal where your recruitment agency/end client can finalise your assignment details, and for you to create your timesheets. We then convert your timesheet(s) to invoice(s) which gets sent across to your agency/end client awaiting payment. Once we receive the funds from them, we will then arrange a same day payroll payment to you.

We will also chase along your recruitment agency/end client for your assignment details and schedule of works so we can get you up and running as soon as possible with no stress to you. If there are any problems with non-payment for any work performed, we will pursue your agency/end client for you. If there is a discrepancy with the payment received against the timesheet you raised, we will also follow this up on your behalf, and will ensure that this is resolved swiftly so as not to delay any payments to you.

£20 per week (or £80 per month for those who get paid monthly) This translates to a net out-of-pocket weekly cost to you of £11.95 per week as a basic rate taxpayer, or £10.19 per week net cost as a higher rate taxpayer.

No additional fees, no hidden costs.
