Why work with Big Number?

Big Number is an Umbrella company that specialises in running SDC (Supervision, Direction and Control) tests. We wanted to concentrate on this and make sure that we work with the new legislation to ensure that each and every contractor is paid fairly.

Lots of Umbrella companies have closed their doors to expenses and are offering other schemes or ways to help you try and maximise your pay. The legislation doesn’t say that expenses cannot be paid it simply states that you can only claim expenses if you can prove that you are not under the  SDC for the manner in which you undertake your role.

HMRC representatives told us in person that they were not trying to stop everyone getting expenses, just limit whom could claim them by applying these rules.


SO Big Number have invested a lot of time and money into getting know the legislation, working with advisor’s and training staff. We also have developed an SDC portal for our contractors to use and our staff and directors bring with them many years of experience in this field.

We are able to pay our contractors without expenses also offering a low fee and the same great benefits and services, but we wont be offering any other pay schemes.
