About Us

An umbrella company will always do two things - help you retain a higher proportion of your earnings and provide a support service to ensure that you don't get bogged down in paperwork and admin. At Umbrella Contracts Limited we do exactly that and what's more, we believe we do it better than any other umbrella company on the market. Why? Because we have the interests of every one of our contractors built into our service philosophy - quite simply, 'we exist to get you paid', and everything else flows from this.

We are a company built by contractors for contractors with the sole aim of making the lives of other contractors easier and helping them to maximize their take home pay. We operate a Faster Payment system ensuring that you receive your money in a timely fashion and where possible on the same day.

What's more, our umbrella company is guaranteed to be 100% secure, compliant and part of that rock-solid, established (and HMRC friendly) tradition of contractors working through umbrella companies. Our team will look after the payment process and we will calculate any necessary deductions such as tax and National Insurance Contributions (NIC), plus help you to claim back legitimate contractor expenses.

We've been around for nearly ten years and have built our reputation on delivering a sound service structure backed up by a bespoke infrastructure that delivers a secure and professional contractor portal.

You can join us instantly and we can have you up and running within our umbrella company the same day. And once you are up and running you can instantly benefit from improved income retention and our incredible employee support services and backroom team taking over all of the tedious paperwork and contract admin, you will never have to deal with accountants or HMRC again. One phone call and the only paperwork you'll ever have to deal with is a single timesheet submitted through your own portal leaving you more time than ever to work or play.
