Bar2 understand that although contracting comes with some fantastic perks for both your work and personal life, it can be tricky to wrap your head around the latest legislations and ensure that you are HMRC compliant in order to be paid...that’s where we come in. 

We understand the value of supporting our contractors through the entire payroll journey, so we offer a number of distinct solutions which guarantee that you take home the maximum income, whilst remaining fully compliant with HMRC. 


By enrolling in Bar2 Umbrella, we will employ you directly and therefore can seamlessly process each and every one of your timesheets effortlessly and without delay. We will take care of all your administration; including calculation of your Tax and NI contributions and payments to HMRC as well as aiding you with any additional insurance support you may require.

If you enjoy the flexibility that self-employment offers you, but are deemed to be under ‘Supervision, Direction or Control’ on your current assignment, then our Self Employed method is most likely the best and most rewarding option for you. By choosing this method, we will ensure you are paid in an efficient and tax compliant way, whilst maintaining that both your self-employed status and all the benefits that come with this are protected.

Limited Company

If you already have your own limited company but prefer the security of trading via a staffing business, Bar2 can help. By invoicing your client on your behalf, we will ensure that administrative tasks do not delay your payments, as well as correctly identifying whether your current assignment is within IR35. We will give you the peace of mind that you are fully compliant.
