Frequently Asked Questions

An umbrella company is a company that employs agency contractors who work on temporary contract assignments, usually through a recruitment agency. It is a third-party supplier acting as an ’employer’ on behalf of its contractor employees.

The umbrella company receives the gross pay from the agency (hours x pay rate). From there, they process the statutory deductions, such as tax and National Insurance and produce payslips.
