    For future reference, you can always keep an eye on your predicted annualised earnings on your personal tax account online, at least then you can see what HMRC are basing your tax figures on via the...

    That would be standard with a second income, they should however have suggested that is that was the case, that you contacted HMRC to adjust your tax code so that the additional tax was taken at...

    No idea where the 12.9% comes from but the Employers Nics is 13.8% of the taxable salary and not the gross invoice rate.

    No idea how that has been calculated either, this should be calculated at 12.07% of your taxable salary, looks like they are basing this on NMW, which they are not allowed to do anymore, needs to be...

    If that is the case all I can say is WOW! If the £11,647.00 is your invoice value, then the take home should be around £6,633 assuming a normal tax code. If they are decuting the Employers NICs from...

    This only looks at one snapshot in time too - so won't help if it is the pro-rata that is causing the issue.

    Just goes to show what I say - it is really important that you speak with the umbrella before signing up, making sure you get a proper understanding of what you are getting. As Eek and Cojak say,...

    Dependent on your rate, the umbrella "may" only look based on one stand alone tax period, if you use an online calcualtor this will look over an annual period, as it assumes "employees' will earn an...

    Any company that can provide a higher take home is flouting the rules, find out the true reality of it from a legitimate, honest umbrella (:wave:) then decide if you want to take the role or not -...

    :wave: as long as you are tax resident here and as you said working from home, then we can help. Drop me a message if you'd like me to talk you through things.

    Seems odd, the umbrella should normally check the terms etc before signing it.

    That "should" be pretty standard, but there is likely to be a contract addendum that takes the details from the B2B through to you.

    Contractual chain is Contractor to Umbrella (Contract of Employment), then Umbrella to Agency (B2B) and Agency to End Client (B2B).

    Makes for an interesting read, and just means that absolute clarity on deductions and rates are needed from the brolly :)

    If they do not repay the holiday pay back it is classified as an unlawful deduction of earnings - so definitely not something that should be happening, I would urge all contractors to check that as...

    Yes, as long as you receive £8.72 as your taxable pay the rest can be processed as salary sacrifice. We currently only pay across to our scheme, but are in talks with one SIPP provider to see if this...

    It's all down to the 336 hours we have to guarantee in any annual period, which equates to around 1 day per week.

    By our records, using our margin, then £6,650.00 should leave you with a taxable salary of £5,823.28, so yes your figures look correct, although I would expect the take home to be higher at around...

    Earnings for the year will be based on the P45 details received, then the taxable salary pro rata'd for the rest of the financial year.

    The brolly will look at the actual hours worked in the calculations, and then refer to the NICs thresholds to see what applies each time payment is made.

    Because on £8.72 per hour, assuming 37.5 hours a week, the annual taxable salary is just over £17k, so above the £12,500 threshold at which tax kicks in.

    Apologies it's taken me a while to come back to you, but I think I have figured out the difference for you, and it all comes back to the rate versus the taxable salary. Looking at your figures the...

    Best idea is to go down the self employed and if he uses something like Go Simple Tax he can make sure he is managing his tax on a month by month basis. Ad Hoc work doesn't work for a brolly and it...

    It will depend on the original day rate as to whether the £70-£80 increase is enough to essentially cover the additional employment costs. That is what I would look at first. If you use our...

    If you are at 40% tax payer then yes between 52 and 56% as average, obviously higher if only a 20%er. In all fairness the tax and NI figures even with margin differences are only going to be give or...
