So your assignment is inside IR35 and trading via a limited company is just not an option? You might consider using an umbrella company like SmartWork or elect to go on your agencies payroll if they offer this.
What’s the difference I hear you ask? The two options are very similar as they both deduct Pay As You Earn (PAYE), which means all the necessary payroll and administrative tasks have been taken care off.
If your recruitment agency offers a payroll facility they may offer you one with two different rates; a PAYE rate and an Umbrella Rate. The umbrella rate is the higher amount as it is uplifted to pass the employment cost on to the contractor.
So what are the differences?
Why not call SmartWork today on 0800 434 6446 to discuss the different options in more details and one of the business manager will provide you with a detailed illustration based on your umbrella rate.
