We encourage you to thoroughly explore your employment payment options so that you can assess what the best arrangement is for you.
Your options are typically:
- to be paid as PAYE
- provide your services through an Umbrella Company
We want to be as transparent as possible regarding your options, please see the links below to ‘Further information’ and ‘Key Information Documents’.
NISI Staffing operate a daily payroll throughout the year for candidates paid via Umbrella. This payment is direct to your account and gives you peace of mind that your tax affairs are being dealt with safely.
If you wish to be paid by an umbrella company, they will control the timing of payments, and it is your responsibility to ensure your tax affairs are being dealt with appropriately.
NISI Staffing has shortlisted a selection of umbrella companies that many of our candidates have given us positive feedback about.
We encourage you to look at the various options available to you and discuss your requirements with the following companies:
- Mega Pay email@example.com
- Smart Cash firstname.lastname@example.org
- Co-op Group email@example.com
- Exact Payroll firstname.lastname@example.org
- Purity email@example.com
- IP Global ip-global.co.uk
- DNS Umbrella firstname.lastname@example.org
- Olympus Contracting email@example.com
To help you make your choice of payment method, please see the Key Information Documents that give you a clear overview of the typical take home pay you would expect to receive, who your employer is, your employment rights and benefits and frequency of pay. We also provide an example pay scenario for each option.

In overview, the ‘off-payroll’ working rules relate to whether an assignment is to be treated like ‘employment’. If the assignment is to be treated as ‘employment’, then the ‘off-payroll’ working rules apply, the assignment is designated as ‘Inside IR35’ and the 'Key Information Document - PSC Deemed Employment' applies. If the ‘off-payroll’ assignment working rules don’t apply, the assignment is designated as ‘Outside IR35’ and the 'Key Information Document – PSC Gross' applies.
From 6 April 2021, the responsibility for managing IR35 moves away from personal service companies to clients and fee-payers.
If you are still unsure about any aspect, please contact your consultant at NISI Staffing who will happily answer any of your questions.
