From umbrella company and limited company services, find a compliant method of engagement that is right for you and your circumstances.
An umbrella PAYE solution allows you to stop worrying about managing your finances or keeping an eye on modern tax legislation changes. We provide you with all the support you need to give you peace of mind and make your life significantly easier.
This solution is the least complex way for contractors to be paid, as unlike managing contracting work yourself, we directly employ contractors carrying out short-term contract assignments and make the associated Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance contributions on your behalf, guaranteeing you receive no unexpected tax bills.Whether you’re operating on a role deemed inside IR35 or you simply don’t want the hassle of having to independent manage your own tax affairs through working as self-employed or via your own Limited Company then this is the solution for you.
A limited company is the most effective form of self-employment, in an Outside IR35 scenario, and offers you and your business a sense of credibility. Operating via a limited company provides a greater degree of tax efficiency and allows contractors to maximise their take-home pay.
One of the main benefits of operating this way is the financial protection provided as you won’t personally be liable for any losses your company makes and you are only responsible for the money you have invested. Forming a limited company is a simple process and is something our trusted partners and suppliers can support you with.
The IR35 rules apply only to a “relevant engagement”, or a contract in which the individual contractor is providing their services via a limited company to a client and, without that intermediary company, their income would have been treated like that received by a standard employee.The IR35 legislation intends that all of the money paid to the intermediary for their relevant engagement (apart from a number of specified deductions) should be subject to class 1 National Insurance contributions and Schedule E income tax, excluding many business-related expenses and dividend payments.
As a result of legislative changes introduced by HMRC from April 2017, for contractors working wholly within the public sector, the client or agency will determine your IR35 status. This essentially means that the decision is taken out of contractors’ hands.Discover IR35

First hand response from their clients!
I find Teo is proactive in searching suitable position whenever I approach him. Teo is quick on getting first hand response from their clients straight after an interview. I would highly recommend him as key recruiter for those who looking for change or further progression.
Teo is absolutely outstanding in attention to detail and never giving up on the values all recruitment specialists should aspire to be like.
I must say that over the past 40yrs of working at some of this countries biggest and most prestigious projects (and industry) I have in all of those years had many agencies working to get me the right position and if that position didn’t work out they ran for the hills!!
A unique situation to put someone in so trust has to be defining, but now to the agency recruitment specialist Teo De La Cruz, after being let down and leaving a position early even though it was supposed to be long term, Teo kept the pressure on and said he would do his best. 3-4 months later I am now working for that same company in a better position! Teo is absolutely outstanding in attention to detail and never giving up on the values all recruitment specialists should aspire to be like.
Teo is a credit to the profession and I can’t thank him enough for giving me the opportunities he has promised and come through with.
Always at the end of the phone to answer any questions
Teo is a reliable recruitment consultant who will work hard to find you a suitable role. He will also continue to ensure you are integrated within your role with no issues and is always at the end of the phone to answer any questions. I would like to continue working with Teo and Murray McIntosh due to the great client service.
Working with Murray McIntosh has been very fluid for the recruitment and engagement on my current role. The agency's continued professionalism has allowed me to entirely focus on my role
Very professional and knowledgeable in assessing my skill set!
I have worked on two contracts for Teo, I found him very professional and knowledgeable in assessing my skill set to meet his clients requirements. This making the interview process successful and contract requirements of his client being fulfilled. He was in regular contact in keeping me up to date with administration of the contract and feedback from the client. I would recommend him as an agent for those seeking a new contract or staff position.
