Media Release: Comment on report that Government set to create more job opportunities for umbrella company contractors


UMBRELLA company, Tarpon, a company specialising in contractor tax efficiency, are encouraged by the recent report in The Independent newspaper that suggests the government is set to create more opportunities for contractors working through an umbrella company.

The proposals are believed to have been put forward at a meeting between the Chancellor, the Confederation of British Industry and Infrastructure UK.

The report clearly states that the Chancellor, George Osborne, is considering introducing ‘project-specific bonds’, in an attempt to improve the country’s infrastructure and stimulate the weakening economy by boosting private sector investment and therefore increasing job numbers, without increasing government spending.

A spokesperson from Tarpon has said:

“Any news that shows there will be future job opportunities for contractors is always going to be received well. With job cuts being taken in many industries across the UK it’s comforting to know that the government is looking to bolster the country’s infrastructure.

“It remains vital that umbrella companies continue to play an important role for contractors by providing an efficient and professional service in processing contractor payrolls.”
