The UK umbrella company where compliance comes first

What distinguishes Orca Pay Group from most umbrella payroll companies is our commitment to compliance. While we appreciate there are various industry accreditations, more than 50 years’ collective experience tells us that HMRC’s is the only opinion that matters.

This is why our entire service offering, from our online payroll services to our strategic resource, is designed to guarantee compliance, protecting our clients and contractors alike by making sure that the correct tax is paid on payments made.

By taking care of compliance, we ensure our clients can continue to engage contractors directly in a frictionless and risk-free manner while devoting more time to doing what they do best. Similarly, our processes guarantee that those on our payroll receive the fair tax treatment and requisite employment rights that many umbrella payroll companies fail to provide.

Embodying our compliance-led approach is The Apex, a pioneering umbrella payroll solution designed to protect contractor supply chains from the threat of the Off-Payroll rules. Negating the tax risk the debt transfer rules impose upon recruitment agencies and their end-clients, The Apex guarantees correct and compliant tax payments by undertaking a detailed compliance audit each time a payroll is run.

With further monthly audits conducted by specialist tax advisers, The Apex affords all parties complete protection, making it the ideal umbrella compliance and payroll solution for the modern .

    By operating a PAYE payment model that has been designed and approved by HMRC, we remove any danger of non-compliance resulting from questionable payment vehicles.
