Created to offer a PAYE service for contractors only, agencies and end clients who have workers being paid through Crystal Umbrella know that they are compliant, with tax and national insurance being taken each time they are paid.

This removes the need to worry about MSC legislation or IR35; both of which carry large risks and uncertainty.

Expenses are operated under a dispensation with the HMRC benchmark scale rates. Crystal Umbrella is proud to be Professional Passport audited. This ensures that everything that Crystal Umbrella does is to HMRC’s guidelines and expectations.

Our HR executive works to ensure that, regardless of contract duration, all our employees are treated as employees, in line with employment legislation.
