Why is it important to check my payslip?

Even though the umbrella company are administering your payroll, you as the individual are responsible for your own tax payments. HMRC will inspect your records as an individual. This means that even if the umbrella company has incorrectly calculated your tax payments, you are responsible for any underpayments. It is always worth double checking that your tax and National Insurance Contributions are correct.

Are your expenses listed correctly on your payslip?

You are only entitled to claim certain allowable expenses directly incurred from your work assignments. Any fraudulent claims are illegal and should you be investigated, you will be found to be non-compliant. Always keep records of your expenses. Your umbrella company may not ask to see receipts but HMRC will if they are inspecting you.

Your payslip is a legal document

Your employer i.e. the umbrella company is legally obliged to provide employees with a clear and understandable payslip containing all the relevant information.

If you do not receive your payslip or if there are any items that you do not understand or recognise, ask your umbrella company for clarification immediately.
