    Late Payments are surely the biggest concern with an umbrella (provided your agency is honest about payment dates).

    The money should really only touch an umbrella's bank account, it shouldn't rest in it.

    My late payments were a result of CU raising/submitting the agency invoice after the deadline, despite prompt completion of my timesheets.

    Slightly different but a problem that shouldn't occur as it is a process that should be automated out of the way.

    I'm seriously thinking about leaving Giant myself. The amount I'm paying them for essentially running my payroll is just staggering - bit disappointed to read this as I liked the reviews of Contractor Umbrella and their calculator suggested I could end up with far more each month. Hoping this thread might be able to help a little.

    Is anybody here actually happy with their umbrella? I'd love to know.

    No-one should be able to net you more, so be very careful that you are comparing like for like figures; sames number of days per period, same tax code.
