Working with Umbrella Companies – What you need to know

Genie works with talent who invoice via a Ltd company or via an accredited Umbrella Company (non-UK talent can invoice through their local business set up). 

For talent who are Sole Traders and considering or have chosen to be paid via an umbrella company then it’s essential to be clear about what this means in terms of benefits and drawbacks. 

Genie works with Granite to deliver a Member Payment Service (Genie-MPS) accepted by all clients who work with Genie. 

Below are 7 short videos that help uncover some of the benefits of going via an Umbrella company and they cover:

  • Introducing Granite and why they are different
  • Added Value from Umbrella Companies
  • Explaining the payslip 
  • Typical Misconceptions 
  • Pensions, Holidays & Tax Allowance
  • Online Umbrella Calculators (and why to avoid them)
