If you’re interested in becoming an Umbrella contractor – that’s great news! It’s a really simple and easy way to work ‘inside’ IR35 and offers a range of fantastic benefits. We’ve developed a guide to help you find out more about working through an Umbrella company and what’s involved so you can decide if this is the right working option for you.

Working as an Umbrella employee is a straight-forward and simple way to enjoy contracting. It involves becoming an employee of an Umbrella company which then supplies your services as its employee to other companies. You can operate one contract at a time or switch seamlessly between contracts while building a record of continuous employment.

There are so many great benefits to working through an Umbrella company like Crest Plus Umbrella, including holiday pay, sick pay, maternity/paternity leave, access to a company pension scheme, and a wide range of insurance cover included as standard.

If you’re thinking about working through an Umbrella company, we’ve created a Guide to Umbrella Contracting to help you understand more about what’s involved and the benefits of working this way. In our guide, we’ll answer everything from ‘what is an Umbrella company?’ to how your pay is calculated, including:

  • How does working through an Umbrella compare to other contracting options such as PAYE or Limited Company?
  • How does an Umbrella company work?
  • How to choose a compliant Umbrella
  • The benefits of Umbrella contracting
  • And so much more.


If you’re exploring your working options and thinking about choosing Umbrella, Crest Plus Umbrella is one of the UK’s longest-established contracting companies, with FCSA-accreditation for complete compliance and a whole host of other benefits on offer – we’ll help you maximise your take-home pay and enjoy the freedom and flexibility of contracting.
