Which Contractor Umbrella Company
We received this from a reader who wants to know which contractor umbrella company he should pick and wants our advice on his decision.
I‘m wondering if you can help me.
I have recently become a contractor (not IT specifically) and for my first assignment I was paid via an agency which the company I worked for paid for.
So, I know that this isn‘t the norm and know that a contractor Umbrella company is probably the best way to go.
I am fairly risk averse at the moment as I‘m so new to the game
I‘ve just started a new assignment and would like to understand which contractor umbrella company is best for me?
Also, as a contractor, is there anything I can read which tells me what my responsibilities are, what tax breaks etc. there are when joining a contractor umbrella company?
