Contracting through an Umbrella Company with Gorilla Accounting.

At Gorilla Payroll, we offer unlimited support to help you find the most financially efficient way of working. Gorilla has had years of experience in the world of accountancy, so we can guarantee that you’re in trusted hands.

Gorilla Payroll may be the solution you're looking for. In simple terms, using an umbrella company means running your contract through a third party, this would make Gorilla Payroll your employer.

We will manage your Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions, so leave the burden of complex calculations and piles of paperwork and administration to us. You’ll also receive the employment rights and benefits of a fixed term employee. This includes statutory sick pay, holiday pay, maternity and paternity pay.

  1. Gorilla Payroll will sign an agreement with your recruitment agency
  2. You’ll sign an agreement with Gorilla Payroll who will become your employer
  3. Send your timesheet to Gorilla Payroll and we’ll pay you with Income Tax & NIC automatically deducted

Why choose an Umbrella Company?

Whether you’re starting out as a contractor or you’re an established off-payroll worker, Gorilla Payroll can fulfil your accountancy needs. If you’re undecided on whether to trade through a limited company, or an umbrella company, we’re here to help you decide.

You will send your timesheet to Gorilla Payroll who will then pay you. You will be taxed at source which will mean that your income tax and NIC will automatically be sent to HMRC.


Benefits of an Umbrella Company

  • No directorial duties as you’re outsourcing the responsibility to Gorilla Payroll
  • Reduces administrative and financial hassle as Gorilla Payroll will be handing NIC and Income Tax 
  • Entitlement to employee rights and benefits (sick pay, holiday pay, maternity pay, paternity pay, employer’s insurance)
  • Ideal for short contracts or if you’re earning less than 25k per annum, or operating in the public sector
  • Easy to use and instant set-up
  • Easier to exit an umbrella company than your own limited company
