One of the key benefits of working for an Umbrella company like Crest Plus is that you can seamlessly switch between contracts.

This means you need do nothing more than call us to let us know you are starting a new contract, then carry on as you did before, submitting your timesheets to us in order to receive your payments.

This is much easier than re-registering with a new Umbrella company, and means you can continue to receive support from Crest Plus on an ongoing basis.

We were one of the first Umbrella companies to be established in the UK, so we understand this way of working like no other in the industry.  Our service is delivered by a team of contractor payments and accountancy experts who strive to provide the tailored support you need to get the most out of being a contractor.

We have provided accountancy and payment services to contractors for 20 years now, and we are fully accredited by the FCSA which means you can rely on us to provide a high professional and fully compliant service to you.  Find out more about why compliance is so important to Umbrella contractors. You can get in touch with a member of our team for advice and information on any aspect of your payment.  Plus, you can access your payslips and other important documentation via our secure online portal.

Switching between contracts

There is no need to register with lots of Umbrella companies as it’s so easy to switch between contracts when you’re with Crest Plus. You simply let us know that you plan to move to a new contract, and we take care of the rest.

We provide a highly responsive service, so it doesn’t matter if you let us know when you are about to start your new engagement, or if you leave it until you’ve actually started, as long as we have the details of the recruitment agency or agencies you are working with we will be able to process your next payment without delay.

Benefits of Umbrella working

Working seamlessly between contracts in this way enables you to build a record of continuous employment which is helpful when seeking mortgages or other types of loan.  This is just one of the many benefits of contracting through an Umbrella company.

Other benefits include:

  • Tax – your Income Tax and National Insurance will be deducted before you get paid, so you don’t need to worry you’re paying too much or too little.
  • Employee benefits – you are entitled to the same benefits and protections as all employees whilst you retain the ability to switch between contracts.
  • Leave entitlement – you are able to accrue holiday pay as well as take paid maternity/paternity/adoption and sick leave.
  • Pension – you are able to save for your future by joining a company pension scheme.
  • Insurance – we provide personal accident insurance at no extra charge.
