What our clients say

For over a year I have been a customer of Umbrellaphant and I can honestly say they have gone above and beyond the “standard” umbrella company. All questions to do with holiday pay, P60’s and pensions have been responded to quickly and efficiently. Payment is on time and accurate. I am currently changing contracts and Umbrellaphant have worked with the agencies compliance team to transition my new contract. I highly recommend Umbrellaphant. Best umbrella company out there and very competitive rates too!
