How does GoForma’s Umbrella Service Operate?

  1. You find a temporary contract role or a recruitment agency places you in a temporary contract with an end client that requires you to be paid through an umbrella company.
  2. You sign up with us, sign a contract of employment and become our 'employee.'
  3. You perform tasks for your end client and submit weekly timesheets with detailed hours of work and allowable expenses (if eligible) to us.
  4. We send an invoice to your agency, providing details of the work or services you've provided.
  5. Your agency receives payment from your end client and transfers it to us.
  6. Once we have your gross salary, we deduct Income Tax, Employee’s NI, and Employer’s NI, and pay them to HMRC.
  7. We retain our margin or umbrella company fee for administrative purposes, and contributions like pension and holiday pay, and then pay you.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Should I use an umbrella company or a limited company?

Choosing between an umbrella company and a limited company depends on your preferences and circumstances. Factors such as assignment rate, IR35 status, and contract duration play a vital role in decision making. An umbrella company may be suitable if you're new to contracting, plan to contract for a short period, or if your contract falls inside IR35.
