“We have been working with NumberMill since summer 2017 when we transferred 120 contractors on to their umbrella. We chose them as a partner as we found them to be focussed on compliance and they passed our due diligence tests. Due to circumstances, the transfer required was very quick, indeed over just one week and went extremely smoothly.”

Chief Executive Officer

“Since dispensing with the services of my initial accountants services, who kept me in the dark and never taught me anything, making me think that accountancy was a ‘closed shop and that everything was a big secret, only to be known by accountants ‘, much like Lawyers and Barristers etc, I turned to NumberMill who I heard of purely through the agency who dealt with them. As far as managing my business was concerned, it was the best thing I did. They have always provided me with a top-notch service and spoke in my language and educated me and I learnt a lot from them, information and advice which I would never have got from my the first accountant.”

GLM Logistics (Lincs) Ltd

“We have worked with NumberMill’s umbrella division, since April 2016 when the legislation changed and we were keen to ensure compliance. We have circa 60 contractors with them which were transferred in one go. We found the transfer be well planned, constructed and swift, despite our workforce being not always the easiest to deal with, the transfer was smooth.

NumberMill at all stages are transparent with us and knowledgeable about legislation and where we have any contractor complaints NumberMill are always able to share with us the recorded phone calls which is very helpful in identifying any misunderstandings.”

Company Director / Classroom Ltd
