LCJ has relationships with umbrella companies that are specialists in the Education sector to enable you to maximise and increase your weekly pay by offsetting legitimate business expenses against your gross salary. This reduces your income tax and National Insurance liability but you will still be treated like any other employee paying tax and National Insurance contributions at source through PAYE.
This scheme is available to all teachers and support staff.
Legitimate business expenses can include:
• Interim Accommodation
• 2 flights home per year (to home country only)
• Travel expenses to and from school
• Food costs during the working day
• Costs of telephone calls
• Computer Software
• Subscriptions to trade journals
• Postage & Stationary
• Enhanced CRB Checks
PPA and the Umbrella company will take care of all payroll administration, tax and National Insurance.
ISS Group Ltd are known to LCJ and we have negotiated with ISS Group Ltd that they will charge no more than a 4% fee per payslip – This charge is also offset as a valid business expense.
When taking the decision to work with an umbrella company, LCJ would advise all candidates to fully understand their right with regards to rebates and/or refunds, as well as other terms and condition such as the withdrawal from the service and any notice required to do so once engaged.
