Media Release: Umbrella company, Tarpon, offer an ultimate employment solution to all contractors


TARPON, an umbrella company specialising in contractor tax efficiency, offer a robust business model that it is strong enough to handle any employment and legislative issues.

Says a spokesperson: “Due to Tarpon’s due diligence they have always worked towards offering their employees a genuine employment solution, whilst remaining best in class within the umbrella industry.”

By offering unrivalled contractor services, Tarpon provide the following benefits for all its contractors:

  • Employing contractors on a full-time (35 hour) permanent employment contract (not a zero/minimum hours contract like alternative providers)
  • Providing both statutory and additional employment benefits in an appropriate manner (when contractors go on holiday, Tarpon provide a payroll as normal)
  • Providing a market leading pension to contractors (through Standard Life)
  • Making available a comprehensive expenses policy (HMRC approved)
  • NOT charging fees to simply be employed but sharing the profits generated per contract
  • Providing four-week notice periods if and when contractors choose to leave
  • Giving contractors access to in house tax specialists, accountants, marketers to assist with their personal career plans

The spokesperson adds: “This is one of the reasons why Tarpon did not need to amend any part of its operating procedures to accommodate the recent Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) legislation which came into force in October 2011. This is also why so many agencies in 2011 chose to work with Tarpon as a ‘safe pair of hands’.

“We understand the complexities involved when dealing with tax and HMRC compliance and are proud to be able to provide contractors and agencies with useful advice surrounding potential employment law and tax challenges.”
