Umbrella PAYE Payroll

26 March 2014

Member Graham Kendall has asked:

I am wondering if any other members have experience of Umbrella Company PAYE Payroll, this is where a contractor becomes an employee of the Umbrella Company, differences are that the contractor pays a fee for the payroll service, they pay both ER's & EE's NIC and can claim certain expenses as long as they are working at a temporary workplace for less than 2 years, essentially on a contract but through a PAYE scheme and not as a self employment with tax return (my need a tax return if other off payroll work carried out). I would be interested to hear from anybody involved in this type of work.
