What is an Umbrella Company

Very simply, an Umbrella Company (Director) is a fast and convenient accountancy solution which allows professional contractors in Ireland be up and running as a self-employed contractor on the same day.

You get almost all of the benefits of being a director of a limited company without the same expense and administration involved in setting up your own limited company.

You can jump in and out of the company when you need to. It’s free to join, there are no leaving fees and you only pay for the months you’re actually working (nice!)

Once you’re registered (just one simple form to complete to get registered) Contracting PLUS will manage all your administration from invoicing, expenses, payroll, tax affairs, accounts and company secretarial matters – all included in the affordable monthly fee (which is a tax deductible expense too).

  • Contributory State Pension
  • Maternity/Paternity/Adoptive benefit
  • Treatment Benefit (some opticians and dental treatments)
  • Jobseekers Allowance
  • Jobseekers Benefit (from November 2019)
