Nixon Williams cannot assist if you are thinking of using an umbrella company. We are a pure accountancy company and as such we do not offer umbrella company services, likewise, we are not affiliated to any umbrella company. Although, generally, you will always be better off using your own company, some people do like to consider using an umbrella company if the contract is for a very short period.

If you do decide to use an Umbrella company we would urge you to do your research carefully and select one with a proven track record who is financially secure. We have not verified the following list but some of the more familiar names are:

Contractor Umbrella Danbro Parasol Giant Paystream JSA.
