Is An Umbrella Company Right For Me?
For people who are already contracting and who love the flexibility and freedom that contracting brings but who hate all the admin and paperwork that comes with the job an umbrella company is the perfect solution. Here at Hamilton Bradbury our umbrella company is built around two core aims – making life easier for contractors by taking over every aspect of that admin whilst at the same time structuring their earnings more efficiently so they bring more home at the end of the day. If that sounds like something that might appeal to you then you might consider changing to our umbrella company. That’s not to say it is right for everyone – contractors who like to retain total control of their paperwork and admin would be much better suited to setting up their own limited company, as would some very high earning contractors who may (in certain circumstances) be able to get better returns from going limited. But on the whole, most contractors these days understand that umbrella companies are the most efficient vehicle for paying tax – which is why more than 200,000 contractors across the UK (and rising) use them every year.
