Bar2 Umbrella

We understand that the onboarding process for candidates can be a deal breaker when it comes to creating long-lasting and trusting relationships. With the contractor engagement stage arguably the most important for your workers, the Bar2 team and our streamlined processes are designed to provide in-depth and on-going support.

What to expect

Agencies working in partnership with Bar2 can expect the very best support and communication from our team, who are passionate about keeping contractors happy. Our Service Delivery Team guide each and every candidate through every stage of onboarding, from registration to right to work checks, timesheet management and finally payment.

We utilise specialist payroll software to calculate and process accurate tax deductions; guaranteeing legitimate, compliant and timely payments. Every payment is completed with a text message confirmation, notifying each individual that their wages have been processed.

We deal with all the headaches that being an employer brings. Bar2 cover all statutory payments, employment risk and contract queries as well as the day to day HR management that is needed to keep employees happy. Forget pension enrolment and contributions, employment tax, holiday pay, SSP and legal responsibilities that would normally lie with you as an employer; we will leave you without the stress of potential unexpected tax bills.

Our team take the hassle out of being an engager; we know that clients need to have confidence that their agency workers are always insured and competent. That is why we cover all of Bar2 employees as standard with industry leading insurances, including Public Liability, Professional Indemnity and offer Personal Accident Insurance for a small additional fee designed with workers in mind.

How else do we support you?

An important part of our job is to know how each client works. We work with your individual requirements and understand the need for a quick turnaround of your invoicing. We will introduce you to a dedicated Service Delivery Team to manage your contract and deal with your temps from start to finish.


We also keep you fully informed about any changes to legislation. Our retained specialist tax advisors and management team meet regularly to ensure that we are fully up to date with the latest legislation and we regularly post information to assist our clients of any relevant changes, like IR35 and the Criminal Finance Act.

Getting a contractor paid through Bar2 is quick, simple and risk-free - taking the pressure off of you.
