Working via an umbrella solution means you become an employee of the umbrella company and are paid on a PAYE basis by the umbrella company. With Mercator Umbrella Solutions you are paid directly via PAYE and we take care of all necessary tax and NI calculations and payments on your behalf. Any expenses you are entitled to will also be processed by us. Our umbrella solution is perfect if you want a hassle-free way to get paid. We pay you promptly each month for the work you have done (minus any tax and NI that is due) and look after all of the administration, leaving you free to get on with what you do best.
