Was about to join these guys but they will not pay on a weekly or monthly cycle stating that HMRC frown on biweekly payments as I do not contribute fully to my NI yearly contributions, this is why all compliant umbrella companies do not offer it. Non-compliant umbrella companies will but unfortunately as they are government approved they cannot and will not." When pressed as to any evidence to this and stating its just a "Salesman tactic to get me to sign-up" I got no response back. Going with another Umbrella.

First-time contractor here - They would not take me on working a 2 day week at £250 a day. They using HMRC's system so they cannot process anything less than a 3 day week and others are using SAGE.

Received an email from 1st choice advising about JRS, who qualifies and how to apply. I responded to them, i received a holding email straight away to advise they will check with my agency and call me to see if i qualified. Received a phone call 2 days later, they apologised for the delay but had to wait for my agency to confirm what i said was correct. They advised that they had applied for me and will confirm once funds cleared. Received a phone call on 30th April to advise fnds have been received and i received my pay on the Friday. 1st choice have been a real life saver for me and my family, i am now back at work. i feel for some of my work mates, they did not apparently qualify as they do not use 1st choice but another umbrella, they are now switching to 1st choice.

Paid as soon as they could, 80% of full salary. They’ve really been great and supported me consistently throughout this awful time! Would recommend them!
