The first step is to determine which service best suits your needs; Umbrella or Limited Company:

What is an Umbrella company?

An Umbrella Company is a previously established Limited Company, which allows a contractor to work under its shelter, hence the name umbrella.

This means that you become an employee of the umbrella company.  As your employer, the umbrella company will then handle all the administration associated with your contract, including your pay.

JSA will process your timesheets and expense claim forms, invoice your agency and co-ordinate the collection of funds.

JSA will calculate the payroll on a PAYE (pay as you earn) basis with the added benefit to you of offsetting any legitimate business related expenses that you claim against tax.  After deducting your Income Tax and National Insurance contributions, JSA pay your net salary directly into your personal bank account and your Income Tax and National Insurance contributions directly to HMRC.

By managing your financial affairs in this way, you can feel confident that you will have legitimately paid the correct level of Income Tax and National Insurance. The money paid into your bank account is yours to spend.
