The quickest way to start Contracting is to use an Umbrella Company. An Umbrella Company is a company structure that you can step into while you Contract. Umbrella companies are usually managed by an accountancy firm (in this case Contracting PLUS). The Umbrella Company is already VAT registered and insured. This offers you an easy- to-use and cost-effective solution to start contracting. There are no set-up or close-down costs. With Contracting PLUS you can be registered into the Umbrella Company within a matter of hours. Umbrella Companies offer a simple, hassle-free option for those who want or need to start working as Contractor immediately.

There are no fees involved in the set up an Umbrella Company with Contracting PLUS.

Usually you can be set up with an Umbrella Company within a few hours.

No. There is no requirement to stay in an Umbrella Company for any time longer than you need it. Just let us know when your Contract finishes and we can ensure that everything is closed off. At Contracting PLUS there are no additional close- down costs.

No. When using an Umbrella Company, the associated bank will already be set-up for you.

If you have your own Personal Company, or if you operate as a director of an Umbrella Company, then yes, you will need to file an annual tax return. We will assist you with this. Contracting PLUS provides a simple online checklist to gather any additional information needed from you, you simply need to complete it and then we will draft your tax return for you.

Yes – we’d love to help you. If you are a contractor who wants more control of your finances then this could be an option for you.

It’s ideal for;

• Those who are thinking long-term about financial planning and their family’s wealth
• Long-term Contractors / Career Contractors
• Contractors who want to purchase company vehicles or other large assets
• Those who want to retain money in the company to build wealth.
