A different, modern approach to umbrella payroll

Whether you are new to contracting or have plenty of experience, Bluebird Umbrella is a modern and online-based PAYE Umbrella Company that can efficiently take care of your payroll. Our online packages start from only £7.50 per week and offer unrivalled value for money.

Founded by experts with over 20 years’ experience in the contractor payroll industry, we have a good understanding of what temporary workers look for from a payroll provider. As the umbrella market is becoming increasingly saturated, we set out to create a unique umbrella service that is unlike any other in the UK.

Passing our savings onto you

Bluebird Umbrella allows contractors and freelancers to get paid compliantly and efficiently – at a very competitive weekly rate. Starting from only £7.50 per week, we have created an online-only umbrella service that will more than take care of your payroll requirements. By removing access to a direct telephone line, we have been able to minimise our business overheads. As a result, we have been able to pass these savings onto our clients – without still being able to offer a quality service.

Whilst you are not able to ring us when you opt for our ‘Essential’ package, the sign up process couldn’t be easier. Our online registration form will only take you approximately 5 minutes to complete and once you have clicked on “Submit”, you will be required to upload proof of your identification. Once the document you upload is approved, you will officially be welcomed to Bluebird Umbrella and will receive an email with all of the information you need to get paid by us.

Telephone support exists, should you need it

If you would still prefer a more traditional umbrella service that includes the option to give us a call, our ‘Extra’ package is the perfect fit. As well as access to our state-of-the-art app, you will be given a telephone number upon registration that you can call during our opening hours.

More than just payroll

Both of our umbrella packages include more than simply your payroll. Not only are our margins low but we also include free £25 million insurance, Employee Benefits,  No hidden costs (including no joining or leaving fees) and a free SMS service that will alert you as soon as you have been paid. Should you opt for our ‘Extra’ package, you can also take advantage of Same Day Faster Payments and a dedicated Account Manager with telephone support.

Part of a successful network

We have a sister company called Bluebird Accountancy and over the last couple of years it has experienced exciting growth. Bluebird Accountancy is a specialist contractor accountant who perfectly combines traditional accountancy with innovative FreeAgent software. If you are currently working through a limited company (personal service company) or think you may be better off setting one up, please give Bluebird Accountancy a call and they will provide you with a free and thorough telephone consultation. Their packages start from only £95.00 per month and you will seriously struggle to find a better value contractor accountancy service in the market.

Do you know how much you could be taking home if you were to sign up to one of our modern, online umbrella packages?
