Morning everyone. Quick question, I’ve booked a one week Locum shift in a hospital pharmacy through an agency, they now asking me about an umbrella company ? I have no idea what that is ? Does anyone know anything about it ?
it’s related to your tax. Umbrella company is like an agency it charges you a service fee but sorts out your tax. So your take home will be less but the tax will be sorted by them.
Please note we do not receive any form of remuneration from this company, but here is an example of an umbrella company: http://www.paystream.co.uk/
