umbrella employment

If you want professional independence with all the benefits of being an employee, an umbrella company is a good option.
But not all umbrellas are the same! With giant umbrella you get giant advantage – our employee reward scheme – to save you £000s annually. It’s one of the many reasons giant umbrella is voted Best Umbrella by readers of Contractor UK year after year, and RI Supplier Awards ‘Best for Contractor Services’ 2017.

your hassle-free employer

Do you love the life but hate the admin? We’ll look after your income tax and National Insurance (NI) chores. All you need to do is complete your online timesheets and expense claims – it’s easy with your personal portal or mobile device – and no paperwork! Then we’ll do the rest. So you’re free to work or play. No stress.

maximise your income with claimable expenses

You can make the most of your income by claiming allowable expenses that don’t attract tax or National Insurance Contributions (NIC). But you'll need to know what you can claim – compliance is key here - and that’s why our expert support team can advise you.
