Limited Company versus Umbrella Calculator

Calculate how your earnings compare when using a limited company and an umbrella company

Use this calculator to calculate and compare the difference in income you will receive when using a limited company or an umbrella company.

Contractors may choose to use an umbrella company to avoid managing limited company administration and their own tax affairs. However, a limited company can be more tax efficient and offers other benefits.

Enter your hourly or daily rate to find out how much monthly and annual net income you would make from either arrangement, as well as how much you would pay in tax.
