|Accountancy||Umbrella Employment||Self-employed/CIS Services|
Established in 2002, ICS have been supporting contractors, freelancers and small business owners across the UK for over 17 years. Our ethos of trust, care and compliance enables you to focus on your job without the task of endless paperwork, ensuring you are operating compliantly.
ICS Umbrella provides an employment solution for independent workers, taking the stress out of contracting. ICS will process your pay either weekly or monthly, paying relevant Tax and NI liabilities to HMRC and the rest to yourself, ensuring you’re paid accurately and on time. As an employee of ICS Umbrella, you will receive full employment rights including holiday pay and sick pay, cover from our comprehensive insurances and access to our expansive employee benefits portal. Through the portal you can manage your pay and pension, find huge discounts on your shopping, access an online GP with email prescriptions and much more!
Our team of accountants get to know your business goals and are there to support you in achieving them. You’ll have a dedicated personal accountant who is just an email or phone call away whenever you need them, offering jargon-free advice to help you stay in control of your money. To give you further clarity we provide FreeAgent cloud accounting software which allows you and your accountant to work together in real-time, reducing paperwork and saving time. Our business insurances (Professional Indemnity and Public & Employer Liability) are included so you are protected should the worst happen. Our fixed monthly fee means you can be sure how much you’ll be paying each month, so no unexpected bills or timesheets!
We introduced self-employment/CIS to help contractors that wish to provide services inside or outside the construction sector. By engaging with us as a self-employed individual or sub-contractor, you can benefit from our comprehensive insurances and discounted self-assessment, without the burden of endless paperwork.
To support our contractors who are ready to take the next step in self-employment and grow into an SME we have our dedicated Business Accounting team. Working closely with you, we create a bespoke service to help you achieve your business goals in a sustainable way. We are accredited partners of Xero, Quickbooks and FreeAgent, so you can choose the cloud accounting software that works for you. We offer fixed monthly packages and jargon-free advice so you are always in control of your money, with no hidden costs. We also support numerous agencies with their accounting needs, aided by our extensive knowledge of the recruitment market and the business processes involved.
ICS Payroll takes the legwork out of payroll by providing outsourced payroll functions to businesses, ensuring your workforce are paid accurately and on time.
