Earn Extra Umbrella service

The efficient employment option

As a specialist umbrella and payroll company working in the telecoms, construction, overhead powerlines, utilities and civil engineering sectors – we’re committed to delivering the best outcomes.

The Earn Extra Umbrella service gives contractors a more consistent and secure alternative employment status

We take care of the day-to-day admin so you don't have to.
Contractors employed through our Umbrella service essentially become PAYE employees of Earn Extra, with full statutory employment rights. We deduct all the necessary taxes and tell you how you can benefit from the tax relief available for genuine business expenses that may be incurred.
