CHAPS Umbrella Payroll

For freelancers and contractors alike

It offers the benefits of an employment contract with the flexibility for the worker to work different assignments.

  • Your workers will sign a contract of employment with Chaps
  • Your agency will contract with Chaps
  • Your agency workers will submit their time sheets either to the agency or Chaps
  • Your agency or the contractor will pay the fee to Chaps
  • Chaps will deduct its margins and employment costs
  • Chaps will pay all the deducted Taxes and National Insurance to HMRC
  • Chaps will issue your workers with payslips detailing gross salary, deductions etc.

PAYE stands for Pay As You Earn. Under this method, the worker or subcontractor is employed under a contract of employment with CHAPS, and CHAPS deducts the necessary PAYE and national insurance contributions and pays the worker a salary. Furthermore, the workers are entitled to statutory employment rights and other benefits like CHAPS employee perks. This is the most straightforward way of operating for CIS workers.
