What is an Umbrella Company?

An Umbrella Company is a company that employs temporary workers, (agency worker or contractor) on behalf of an Employment Business, or End-Client. The Umbrella Company does not find work for the workers they employ, it is the Employment Business that provides the services of those workers to their clients.

Working through an Umbrella Company offers an ideal first step into contracting, without all the hassle and responsibility of paperwork. When you join Fair Pay Services, we’ll be with you every step of the way, with employment support and benefits that are second to none.

Changes in legislation have resulted in traditional PAYE Umbrella solutions no longer delivering optimum returns for contractors. Without travel and subsistence relief today’s Umbrella is a simple outsourced employment management solution and should be priced accordingly. Fair Pay Services provide a cost effective solution whilst delivering a high level of service and operational efficiency to contractors, agencies and companies alike.

We’ll handle your administration for you, calculating your tax and NI contributions and making payments to HMRC. At the same time, you’ll be paid swiftly and accurately, and there will always be someone available to talk to if you have any queries or concerns.

Offering the same fantastic benefits similar to an outsourced PAYE, Fair Pay Services provides contractors with continuing employment (OAC) and ability to claim allowable expenses at year end through personal tax returns.

Fair Pay Services is available at one of the lowest weekly margins in the marketplace. We truly are one of the most cost effective Umbrella solutions in the market with a huge host of benefits available!
