Contractors, freelancers and the self-employed all have one thing in common. That is getting their payroll through the use of an umbrella company. For those of you who have only heard of this now, it can be quite confusing. So here are just a few basic points to understand about this certain umbrella. This would especially be helpful for those of you who are planning to work as a freelancer or become self-employed in the near future.

Basically, an umbrella companies are just firms acting out as the main employers to people who work through agencies, contractors, all working under fixed terms or contracts. In the UK, such a setting is conducted through the REA or Recruitment Employment Agency.

Next pointer about such companies is how they issue invoices. They do so by the use of an associated recruitment firm. Once an invoice payment comes through, they process payment to the contractor via their PAYE system. An additional benefit of such is offsetting the proportion of given income. How so? Simply by claiming the expenses incurred from food costs, accommodation and transportation.

Most of you would ask, is such a thing legal? Why, yes of course it is! Umbrella companies follow through with HMRC legislation's. They are not only HMRC compliant but complaint with the IE35 as well. Contractors are assured that tax affairs are handled legally.

Another pointer to discuss about umbrellas is expenses. Being the most vital of elements, they ensure that contractor get the 100% benefit of their expenses which some are not even aware is possible. These are what we term “allowable” expenses which include general transportation costs (gas consumption or mileage is covered in this) and accommodation costs (hotels). Generally, subsistence and food costs are unallowable as terms in the expenses but an exception to the rule is when a worker is far away from home for a certain time. Professional subscriptions on the other hand are also included in the “allowable” expenses.

So if you are one of those people looking for freedom from the labors of office work and wanting to be free from the frustrations and restrictions of a know-it-all boss, then going freelance or being self-employed is the best way to go. You not only have loads of time for yourself, family and friends, you also get to decide your workload and work hours. The maximum amount of your income would equally depend on your maximum effort. Tax affairs and legal issues would not become a worry for contractors such as yourself if you work hand in hand with an umbrella company. Contractors not only save time on managing tax affairs but rest assured they get more time on working on their business.
