Frequently Asked Questions

If a contractor’s status determination statement (SDS) stipulates that their contract falls inside IR35 can they still use their Limited company?

Yes and no! A contract that falls ‘inside IR35’ can only receive ‘net’ payments after deductions by their agency. A contractor should discuss with their accountant the best way to handle any income and TAX due. Umbrella in a Box works with a number of accountants who can advise and guide.

Is it expensive to set up and operate an umbrella company with you?

No. Set up fees are almost ZERO and we charge per time sheet processed if we are managing your company. For self-management we charge a fixed monthly fee, but there are no set up fees currently allowing you to set up for a limited cost.

Will I need to set up new company?

Yes, an umbrella company is an employer of contractors. The company will be branded as your company, as will be the portal, pay slips and all correspondence.

What is a fee payer?

The ‘fee payer’ responsibility will rest with the employer who is legally bound to process the payroll and deduct all TAX’s (PAYE) and National Insurance (NI) at source.

Will this be my own company?

Yes, you form your own company and we provide all the software, training and support for you to become an employer of contractors.

Who do I call if I have a problem?

We provide a 9am – 5pm dedicated support for all queries with contractors and operational software.

Where does the contractor data sit?

Our software is a fully integrated, secure cloud-based operator with all data held in accordance to GDPR and employment law rules.

Will I have to speak with the contractor’s agency and/or end user?

Yes, your company will need to develop a relationship with the agency/end user that your contractor has their contract with. You will need to comply with their terms of engagement. Your company will need to issue a service contract to them which you will both be governed by for the length of the contract. A contract of employment will also need to be issued to the contractor and will be live for the length of the contract. However, depending on which package you choose our customer services team will do all of this for you and/or advise and guide you.
