Our Most Popular Contractor Solution

Of all the solutions we offer at Clever PAYE our ‘Employed Solution’ is by far the most rewarding, offering the best rates of retention (up to 90%) whilst simultaneously asking the least of the contractor when it comes to paperwork, admin and legal responsibilities. It is easy to see why it is our most popular contractor solution!

How It Works

Our employed solution is similar to the traditional umbrella company structure except that it requires even less paperwork, pays even better returns and offers more legal protection. That’s because you will legally be an employee of Clever PAYE and will have full employed status in the eyes of the law. You will be employed by Clever PAYE as a ‘professional consultant’ and will therefore be able to take advantage of all the benefits and protections of full time employment – including having your compliance taken care of as Clever Paye pay your NI and PAYE on your behalf directly to HMRC. You will also receive sick pay, maternity leave, holidays and holiday pay and will be automatically covered for Professional Indemnity Insurance (usually up to £5,000,000) and Public Liability Insurance (usually up to £10,000,000). Your earnings will be accessed quickly and easily (you will get them the same day we do) and the sole extent of your paperwork will be a single timesheet handed in either daily or weekly. We will take care of everything else. It really is that simple.

Complete Compliance

A massive increase in earnings and we take care of all your paperwork – there’s got to be a catch right? And you are right to be cautious – a number of income retention schemes have fallen foul of HMRC in recent years and have been caught out by MSC legislation, IR35 and many other tax rules aimed at contractors. But here’s where we are different. Firstly, we offer a wide range of solutions and aren’t just pushing one product. Secondly, we have a team of compliance experts who have put together all our solutions from the start and who are constantly checking new legislation and regulations to ensure our packages never upset HMRC. That’s why everything we offer is 100% compliant and is outside of IR35, unaffected by Agency Workers Regulation and fully GAAR compliant. Indeed everything we offer is already fully compliant with the recent RTI (PAYE Real Time) legislation. Thirdly and most importantly, we’re a UK company, based in the UK and offering UK solutions to UK contractors. The only time you’ll hear the word ‘offshore’ from us is when you’re talking about all the extra holidays you’ll now be able to afford!
