are a quick and convenient way for contractors and other Freelance workers to engage and trade with an agency. These are especially popular with first time contractors, because they deal with all the back office activity including signing contracts , Invoicing collecting payments and all other processing, in short they make sure that the contractor is set up correctly and legally.
Umbrella services vary from country to country and Chesterfield operate a number of different Umbrella companies for different countries and industries. Generally using umbrella services means that the contractor joins in an existing scheme and then this will save them from setting up a new company or arrangement from scratch. It has the advantage of enabling the contractor to avoid an expensive set up but more importantly, they can negotiate a contract straightaway without the expense of setting up their own entity or the complications of closing it down, if a contract is not agreed or when assignment finishes.
The most usual situation is for the umbrella company to enter into to a contract or supplier agreement with the contractors. Often the procedure would be for the existing umbrella entity to enter into a contract with the contractors client or agency. It can be, but not necessarily, that the contractor becomes an employee of the umbrella.
An umbrella service usually manages the whole process from contract execution, to contract invoicing
through to payment of the contractor.
