Public Sector Umbrella Company
Public Sector Umbrella is specifically for contractors who work in the public sector. Many contractors are not able to use their personal service companies any more.
Some of them cannot use them any more because they have failed the IR35 Employment Status test created by HMRC.
Others because some Government departments no longer accept contractors who operate through personal service companies.
So, they have the choice of either their agencies removing tax and national insurance fom their income or joining an umbrella company.
Joining an Umbrella Company
It is usually financially better, therefore, to join an umbrella company.
With most umbrella companeis the difference is only marginal.
However, there are some where contractors can retain a little more of the money they earn.
One such company is Public Sector Umbrella.
It takes into account all the IR35 regulations and the new Government guidelines in the public sector.
