Cost-effective payroll and employment services solution for agencies and contractors
Jones Howard's umbrella model is both fully compliant and highly competitive providing recruitment agencies and contractors with a transparent payroll solution. Our umbrella product remains an increasingly popular option for recruiters and workers who prefer tax and NI contributions to be paid at source.
Contractors benefit from their ‘employed' status that provides access to a choice of holiday pay options (accrued or paid out), auto-enrolment into a work-based pension scheme and entitlements to statutory sick pay, maternity (paternity pay) and shared parental leave et al.
Approved by Professional Passport and audited annually, the product is therefore supported by an insurance policy of up to £5m which provides agency owners and directors with complete protection against any liability or risk of debt transfer.
We enhanced our umbrella solution with an array of genuine features to add real value to both recruitment agencies and contractors as outlined below.
