Umbrella service for contractors

If you're taking on a short-term contract or just looking to try out the world of contracting, operating through an umbrella company can be a good option.

Our umbrella service for contractors is beautifully simple. We take care of all your tax responsibilities and make sure you get paid regularly, leaving you to concentrate on your contracting work.

Our expert team is always on hand to provide help and support whenever you need it. We'll also be able to advise when setting up a limited company might be a better option for you.

  • Tax and compliance

    We'll make sure all your tax and National Insurance contributions are taken care of, giving you more time to concentrate on what you do best.

  • Prompt payments

    With our weekly and monthly payment schedules, we'll make sure you're paid on time, every time. All you need to do is submit your timesheets.

  • Insurance

    As a Crunch Umbrella employee, you'll automatically be covered for public liability, employers' liability and professional indemnity.
