Umbrella calculator

Figure out your estimated gross earnings under our umbrella solution with our umbrella take-home pay calculator below. 

Calculate your take home pay

These calculations are based on 40 hours per week over 52 weeks.

How umbrella company take-home pay works 


To calculate the take-home pay, we start by using the umbrella rate which would be paid by the client or agency in order for us to process your payroll compliantly. The client or agency may refer to this as a ‘limited company rate’, as it is an all-inclusive rate intended to cover all employer costs, and statutory employee contributions.


If you have previously worked for your own limited company, this is the rate you will have received from your agency, and you would have been responsible for deducting all company costs and making payment to yourself as a director or employee of the company.

If you are inside the scope of IR35, or you are unable to work through your own limited company, then payment in this way is no longer an option for you.  

This take-home calculator will factor in the employer costs that need to be covered such as National Insurance, Apprenticeship Levy, statutory pension contributions and margin. It will also factor in the employee contributions such as income tax, National Insurance and pension deductions to give you an expected take home pay. This will provide you with a benchmark figure so that you can compare with your current arrangements and other options.
