Receive full employment rights under PAYE…

An umbrella company employs professional contractors who carry out assignments for recruitment agencies and/or end-clients. This can be an ideal first step into contracting without any hassle.


Limited Company

Are your earnings around £35,000 per year or above?

Whether you’re just getting started as a contractor, or have been working through an umbrella for a while, a limited company could be the perfect fit for you. Wave Contracting have a couple of packages to choose from.



HMRC have specifically set this system up for the construction industry.

CIS stands for Construction Industry Scheme which is a set of special rules laid out by the tax office for handling payments made by contractors to subcontractors for construction work.

A few words from our clients

Don’t just take our word for it – we can put you in touch with some of our clients…

The service we have received from Wave since signing up has been far superior than any of the other umbrella solutions we have used in the past. The transition of existing workers was a seamless process and having a dedicated account manager has meant we have immediate access to support/query resolution.

The introduction to the new referral set-up and the new recruiter portal makes on-boarding and managing of employees simple and transparent.

If the services and solutions they provide continue at the level they have been at until now, I would have no hesitation in remaining with Wave for the foreseeable future and would highly recommend them to any recruitment agency new to the temporary hires market or those looking for a new provider.
