Umbrella company costs

Firstly, what you should know about our margin:

  • It is a flat rate margin
  • It does not increase with the amount you earn
  • There are no deductions to your payslip for joining or if you decide to leave
  • It’s a weekly margin and there is no deduction when you are not working
  • It is calculated to be tax efficient

Flat rate, not a percentage

Other Umbrella Companies charge you a percentage based on the amount of your invoice, the amount taken by the service provider increases with the amount you earn, e.g. 5% of £600 is £30 but 5% of £1600 is £80 per week. This is not how we work, as mentioned we just deduct out flat rate margin

No deductions for joining or leaving

You are joining us as our employee - There are no ‘up-front’ costs to join and no long term tie-ins or penalty charges when you leave.

Only when you work

If you only work for 2 weeks in a month due to having a 2 week holiday, you will only see our margin on your payslip for the 2 weeks you have worked; not a full month.

Tax efficient

Our margin is calculated and treated as an expense. This means that although the amount reflected on your payslip is £29.50, the actual net effect on your income once adjusted for tax, is either £17.63 if you are a basic rate taxpayer, or only £15.03 if you are a higher rate tax payer.

NIC is calculated as Employers 13.8% and Employees at 12% (basic rate).
