Could an umbrella company benefit you?

Paraplus is the UK’s ethical umbrella company for temporary workers and contractors. If you’re working on a series of temporary assignments as a PAYE employee and earning a weekly wage, you’re allowed to claim any legitimately incurred expenses against your tax bill. Not all recruitment agencies and employers are set up to process payments for workers in this way.

Paraplus is an umbrella company founded on a vision of transparency and honesty. We process workers’ expenses and pay in the most tax efficient way, while making sure you comply with all HMRC regulations.

With Paraplus you become our employee, meaning that you secure the statutory benefits that you should be entitled to, ensuring that as a temporary worker you receive a fair deal.

As part of our ethos we believe that payslips should be transparent and easy to understand. With Paraplus our payslips are broken down with a clear layout. If our workers have any questions, we have dedicated personal advisers to provide them with continuous help and support.

By using an umbrella company like Paraplus, we can help temporary workers make the most from their income. As a contractor you will receive the tax relief you are entitled to in a simple, efficient way.

How can a recruitment agency benefit from an umbrella company?

It’s not just temporary workers who can benefit from an umbrella company, but recruitment agencies too. Our umbrella company helps recruitment agencies payroll contractors in a hassle-free and transparent way that is ethical and fair for both parties. Our experienced team will implement a smooth process which ensures cost savings, reduced administration and also maintains consistent compliance with AWR regulations and HMRC guidelines.

As the UK’s ethical umbrella company, we work to the lowest margins in the industry, ensuring our contractors are always in a better position than they currently are. Uniquely at Paraplus there is no minimum weekly margin and if there are no financial benefits to a contractor from working with us we will take no margin.
