I've just started contracting and the umbrella company I was pointed toward has paid me for two weeks in 1 week causing me to pay a lot more tax than I needed to. When I tried to change the agency says I have to use 1 of 3 umbrella firms. The one I am currently using has a bad rep, if you believe the internet so I had picked one that seemed to be well thought of but they're not one of the 3. Can't I decide which umbrella firm to use..

Firstly welcome :wave:

You should have gone limited in the first place. Personally I would tell the agency that you are moving to limited and if not you will walk.

Also, can you say which the 3 umbrellas are and which one you are having issues with? Oddly enough, some people find that when they tell the umbrellas they are being talked about on cuk, that their issues magically get resolved.

Odd that. :eyes

Welcome! :)

I'll copy your question to the Umbrella forum as well :)
