Now you can invest for your retirement AND save up to 50% in tax!
Working through a contractor umbrella company has many perks. Not only do you enjoy the freedom of being an independent contractor, you also retain many of the benefits of permanent employment.
But while most umbrella company contractors minimise their tax through the use of expenses, very few appreciate the enormous tax advantage of investing in a pension. In fact, due to the way that umbrella contractors are paid, the tax savings of using a pension are often double that of a permanent employee!
Image being able to build up a tax free nest egg which you can then withdraw from the age of just 55? As anyone will tell you, the sooner you start investing in a pension the better, which is why should you ACT NOW to avoid financial hardship in the future. Government coffers are at an all time low which is why you CANNOT rely on state handouts when your working days are over.
Pensions for umbrella company contractors
We have teamed up with Freelancer Financials who can put in place a flexible, low cost pension scheme, operated through Scottish Equitable. The scheme is designed to provide you with a payment plan that takes into account your contractor status. Due to the changeable nature of your contract work, you need to have complete freedom to decrease, increase, restart and freeze contributions without incurring a penalty.
Should you leave your umbrella company at any stage, you have the option to stop investments, continue funding the plan as a personal contribution or your transfer the pension to a new employer.
Over the years, Freelancer Financials have helped hundreds of contractors setup tax efficient pensions. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of their customers have said about their pensions service.
“All at Freelancer Financials are held in the highest esteem, not only professional but personable. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for advice on how or what to do when investing in a pension.”

“Thank you for your patience and understanding. I always avoided pensions in the past as no one could explain in simple terms how they worked and how I could benefit. The service has been very professional, prompt and personal and I thoroughly recommend them to other contractors.”
Dennis Sweeney (Contractor)
