Whether you're new to contracting or are an old hand, an umbrella company such as Crystal is an extremely simple option if you can't face all the hassle, admin, tax issues, stress and responsibility of running your own Ltd company.

We do all this, so you can be sure your payments are calculated correctly and you are completely protected and compliant.
