Why choose plan.it umbrella?
The plan.it umbrella service is administered by a firm of regulated Chartered Accountants which has specialised in the contractor market since 1996. plan.it is a founding member of AEMC - the umbrella industry's own regulatory body. You can rest assured that we operate compliantly and your money is in safe hands.
Easy Online System
Submit timesheets and expenses in minutes online. Nothing could be easier.
Fast Efficient Service
We can have you set up on our umbrella within 24 hours. Then the moment the money from your agency or client hits our accounts, we calculate your tax, expenses, National Insurance Contributions, and pay you the same day by BACS (or, at your option, by Faster Payment Service). We also notify you by SMS so you know when to expect your money.
You're covered by 17 million pounds of essential employment insurances: £2m Professional Indemnity insurance, £5m Public Liability insurance and £10m Employers Liability insurance. This is included in the service, there is no additional charge.
Convenient Compliant Expenses
The expenses you can claim are the same regardless of which umbrella you use but we make it easier by giving you clear guidance about what costs can be claimed and make it simple for you to do so compliantly. Umbrellas that don't ask for any receipts could get you into trouble. Many require you to send proof of your expenses every week. We apply tax-relief weekly and provide prepaid envelopes to send us your supporting receipts each month. In line with all FCSA members we've adopted HMRCs benchmark scale rate dispensation which allows you to claim pre-set daily subsistence..
Money Back Guarantee
Should we make any error in paying you the right amount or at the right time, we will correct it and waive our margin.
Expertise & Choice
We've been advising contractors since 1996. plan.it is also one of the few providers who also offer a Personal Service Company (PSC) solution. So, if your circumstances change and running your own limited company becomes the best option we can switch you over without fuss.
Support As Needed
All plan.it contractors are assigned a dedicated member of our Client Services Team to welcome them aboard and provide on-going support. We're available by phone, 8:30am to 6pm Monday to Friday to assist whenever required. You'll find that we're big enough to provide an unrivalled service, but small enough to know you by name.
