Umbrella companies: how they work, their pros and cons
August 29, 2022
- Wage portage is a status that lies between salaried work and independent contracting.
- It’s a three-party contractual agreement between the salaried worker (contractor), the umbrella company and the client company.
- The employee is associated to the umbrella company by a work contract and enjoys the same social advantages as a normal salaried worker in a company (unemployment insurance, health insurance, retirement, paid vacation, etc.).
- They’re free to choose their clients and set their own rates.
- The umbrella company handles the administrative and financial tasks for their employee’s work activity (invoicing, accounting, follow-up with clients). In exchange they levy a management fee on the employee’s revenue.
- It’s an attractive option for freelancers who are just starting out in their business project.
