Working with Smart Pay

Established in 2005, Smart Pay has been working with recruitment agencies to provide a leading umbrella company solution to temporary workers, contractors and freelancers.

We offer agencies:

  • A cost-effective solution to contractor payroll
  • Access to an experienced and trusted team of payroll experts
  • Peace of mind that correct contracts are in place
  • An online portal for contractors to view timesheets and transaction history

Smart Pay ensures compliance with all legislation in relation to contractors. As Smart Pay is an independent UK company, our employment service ensures there are no risks to your business from the MSC or the associated Transfer of Debt legislation, and no risks to your contractors from IR35. Smart Pay does not provide personal service or composite companies to provide the services of individual workers and we do not pay dividends to workers.

Our standard business contracts are written to ensure there can be no doubt that they are contracts for service to give you the security that no worker can be deemed to be an employee of your or your clients business. Furthermore our Employment Agreement is written in line with HMRC’s own expectations of a genuine ‘over-arching’ agreement, ensuring all assignments undertaken by our employees will be under their ongoing Smart Pay employment.

We are fully registered with HMRC for Corporation Tax and PAYE, and ensure that all PAYE and NIC returns and payments are made on time every time.

Smart Pay holds a high level of primary insurance covering all of our employees. We provide the following cover:

  • Employers Liability to £10 million
  • Public Liability to £5 million
  • Professional Indemnity to £5 million

We are committed to delivering a seamless service to recruitment agencies, easing the administrative burden of payroll and the enquiries associated whilst offering an exemplary service to your clients. Contact our team to get more information on what makes our umbrella company solutions stand out.
