Payroll FAQs

Umbrella Company or Agency PAYE?

Although a Direct PAYE engagement is still fully compliant, engaging this way means that with every new assignment you will work under a new contract. This could mean that your tax code won’t be consistent and you may not always have the option to turn down work. 


Both Umbrella and PAYE provide the security that there will be no unexpected tax bills, you would be fully covered by the agency insurances and both options will automatically enrol you into workplace pension after 12 weeks of employment.


An umbrella model, however, allows you to maintain the flexibility of being a contractor without the administrative burden of maintaining your accounts, business insurances and keeping up to date with changes to tax legislation.


Some umbrella companies also allow you to sacrifice your salary into a personal pension/SIPP.
