Could an umbrella company benefit you?
Paraplus is the UK’s friendly and efficient umbrella payroll company that ensures temporary workers and contractors are paid on time and benefit from perks that are more typically associated with the security permanent workers enjoy.
When you sign up to Paraplus you essentially become our employee (under our umbrella if you like) even though you’re temping at other organisations. Once you become a Paraplus employee you’re eligible to receive statutory benefits such as paid holidays, sick pay, life and personal accident insurance and maternity pay.
From April 6 th 2016, one of the biggest changes to the way temporary workers are paid comes into effect under the 2016 Finance Bill. This new law will mean it will suddenly become illegal for the majority of temporary workers and contractors to claim travel and subsistence expenses**. Tax legislation is extremely complex and it can be easy to be caught out. Paraplus makes sure you’re paying the right amount of tax and not claiming for things you shouldn’t.
**It will be illegal to claim expenses if you:
personally provide services to another person are employed through an employment intermediary and are under (the right of) the supervision, direction or control of any person, in the manner in which they undertake their work.
Our dedicated employee care team are always on call from early to late, five days a week to provide continuous help and support, whatever your query.
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. Our experienced team will implement a smooth process which ensures reduced administration and also maintains consistent compliance with AWR regulations and HMRC guidelines.
