How we work with you and your agency
You register with our Employment Umbrella and become an employee of Danbro
We’re sent the contract for your services for a specified number of hours at the rate you agreed with your agency or direct client
Each week or month (depending on your contract) we send an invoice to your agency or direct client for the work you’ve done
We make the statutory deductions relating to your employment with us (Employer's National Insurance and Apprenticeship Levy) and pay them directly to HMRC.
We retain our margin and deduct any contributions you're opted into. These are all broken down in the 'Company Deductions' section (pg 2)
Your agency or direct client forwards the funds to us, you'll see this on your reconciliation sheet (pg 2) as 'Contracted Rate'
We deduct Employee's National Insurance and Income Tax and pay them directly to HMRC, you'll see these on your payslip (pg 1) in the 'Deductions' section
We pay you your take-home pay. This is shown in the 'Paid' section (pg 1)
What happens when you get paid?
Every time we pay you, we send you a text message to let you know, and at the same time we put a payslip on your portal. It's a 2 page document - page 2 is a reconciliation sheet and page 1 is your payslip.
It’s really important to understand what these pages tell you, so the following is designed to help explain how your pay is worked out.
We start on page 2 , your reconciliation sheet, as this shows the income we receive from your agency for the work you have done. There are separate breakdowns for company deductions and expenses.
What remains after these deductions is yours. Your gross pay is shown at the end of the Pay Summary section of your reconciliation sheet and this is carried over to page 1, your payslip, as illustrated in the sections below.
