How do umbrella companies work?
Umbrella companies work by employing temporary workers on the same basis as any other business employs staff, with all of their income going through the PAYE system. This means that as an employee you would be provided with a Contract of Employment, ensuring full employment rights and statutory benefits
At the start of your employment it is agreed that you will have a series of assignments at different locations, and on this basis you should be able to benefit from any travelling and subsistence costs associated with carrying out work at your temporary workplace.
What are the benefits of working for an Umbrella Company?
Employees of Universal Project Services have the advantage of being able to offset certain legitimate business expenses to reduce their tax and national insurance. At Universal Project Services we take our responsibility seriously and our expenses team is tightly managed to ensure you remain compliant.
Our expenses policy shows clearly what an allowable business expense is, “Expenses must be incurred wholly, exclusively and necessarily in the performance of your duties”. Please see our expenses pack for full details.
