Unlike traditional employees, umbrella workers will undertake a series of separate assignments with their umbrella company, and on the whole each assignment will be performed at a separate location (usually the site of the end client).

Provided the umbrella has a sufficiently robust ‘overarching employment contract’ with it’s employees, these workplaces will be classed as ‘temporary’ for tax purposes.
This means that umbrella workers are able to offset the cost of their travel & subsistence expenses getting to work, and whilst on site. Claiming expenses pre-tax reduces an umbrella worker’s taxable gross salary and subsequently the amount of tax paid. On the whole, there is usually a 5 -10% difference in take home pay between umbrella company and straight PAYE.

Which ever umbrella company you choose, you will be paid through PAYE meaning the necessary tax and NI contributions will be deducted before you are paid as an employee.
