The main alternative to the Umbrella trading option is to set up your own limited company.
A limited company offers great tax efficiency but has a larger administrative burden than working via SmartWork. Although it can sound a little daunting at first, running a limited company is not that difficult.
Our sister company, MyAccountant, has over 20 years of experience in helping contractors make the most of their limited companies (Personal Service Companies or PSCs) with a focus on delivering a personal service, whether you are just starting or transitioning from being an umbrella employee.
MyAccountant’s accountancy packages offer complete accounting services handled by their team of ACCA-qualified personal Accountants and backed by an FCSA accreditation. Services are covered by a fixed monthly or annual fee, with no hidden extras.
