More about these benefits

Insurance: Public Liability insurance cover of £5m, plus accident insurance paying £300 a week income support for up to two years, all for just £2.99 per week.

Free mobile: Never pay a mobile bill again! We supply you with an EE SIM to use in your current handset, providing unlimited minutes, unlimited SMS and 2GB of data each month, all free of charge.

Free personal tax returns: Other providers charge almost £200 for this service and accountants even more.

Four weeks margin free at each new role: We charge no payroll margin for the first 4 weeks when you introduce Ship Shape as your payroll provider at a new agency/end hirer.

Referral bonus: We also provide generous bonus payments of up to £500 for introducing friends, new agencies and employers to Ship Shape.

Tax position in your pay remittance: For your peace of mind and financial planning, we include an up to date summary of your tax position with each pay remittance.

Childcare vouchers: Our innovative scheme is based on the Government initiative designed to help parents afford high quality childcare. You are able to claim up to £55 weekly or £243 monthly to pay for nurseries, childminders, even out of school activities for older children.

Cycle to work scheme: Once employed by Ship Shape Pay, choose a bike from one of the 1,000+ cycle scheme partner stores. Then apply for the scheme online, entering our employer code and signing an online hire scheme. The tax savings allowed by the Government, encouraging us to all to be fit and 'Green', mean that you will get your new bike at about half price!


*Expenses: Since April 2016 umbrella workers may not claim tax relief on costs associated with travel from home or subsistence. Self Employed or Limited Company are able to claim all expenses 'wholly and exclusively' associated with carrying on their business.
