Services we provide

Orbital has a range of compliant models to suit all levels of businesses and the workforce

Here’s what we do

Orbital supports UK based contractors working for agencies and end clients, by providing PAYE and self-employed payroll options.

Our specific outsource services are tailored to suit the whole contract chain in multiple industry sectors for blue and white collar disciplines. We complement our customers perfectly by ensuring a hassle-free and efficient pay run, with minimal fuss and always with a smile.

The temp worker and payroll intermediary market is a complex animal that is constantly changing to reflect new working patterns besides the many levels of compliance that need to be adhered to.

In 2018 we celebrated our 10th birthday, a milestone to confirm that we have been agile enough to cope with the various challenges that come our way. During this time we have always ensured that we treat everyone with the same integrity, respect and clear communication in line with our own client and contractor ‘CARE’ ethos:

Compliant Attentive Responsive Everytime

We also have several industry recognised accreditations’ which confirm our ongoing commitment to compliance and best practice. Why not get in touch to see how we can assist you?

Reliable options:

Umbrella PAYE

No Expenses - This model is what many existing agency workers will now fit into if they are currently paid an uplifted ‘umbrella rate’ by their agency and working in roles deemed likely to be under Supervision, Direction & Control (or the right of).

Mileage Only – If you’re not under Supervision, Direction & Control (or the right of), or are a Multi-site / peripatetic worker, you may be able to claim some expenses.

CIS/Non-CIS Self-Employed Sole Trader

For Construction Contractors who are NOT subject to SDC

The ‘Construction Industry Scheme’ is a very efficient self-employed method of payment that appeals to construction contractors who are NOT under Supervision, Direction & Control (or the right of).

You’d be paid as a self-employed sole trader and deducted the appropriate percentage of tax weekly. You may then claim legitimate business expenses to potentially receive a tax rebate via self-assessment.

Professional Employer Organisation (PEO)

This is as simple as PAYE as it comes.This model is perfect for agencies who do not have their own PAYE solution and who cater for workers who work from minimum wage upwards.

Joint Employment

This model was another variation of PAYE that we added in 2019 after it was gathering pace as an answer to the VAT problem found in the supply chain of healthcare recruiters and Umbrella providers.

Orbital Benefits

We offer all this...

Peace of Mind

Clients can rest assured that they are getting sound advice and best practice from a long-established and compliant payroll provider.

We carry many of the most-recognised compliance standards throughout our industry and we operate completely independently, so always have your best interests, discretion and safety at heart.

Proactive Right to Work in the UK Checks

We insist on correctly performing the required checks on Right to Work (RTW) documents as standard, which has led to many illegal workers being exposed at Orbital HQ over the years.

Our back-office staff have undergone specific training in being able to spot counterfeit documents with a trained eye besides using the help of any electronic checks as a back-up.

If this is an area where you need help, why not ask us for a second opinion?

Advance Payments

This is a standard part of our service for late timesheets or if details have simply been missed off the normal weekly pay-run.

All we need is the operatives’ details and a breakdown of their earnings, and we will pay them the same day at no extra cost.

Online Services

We are a paperless company in tune with the on-the-go demands of a fluid, 21st century workforce.

This means that all workers can register their details, sign contracts, access payslips and attach documents electronically within a few simple clicks, saving time and paper!

Personable Service & Multi-lingual Staff

We keep it simple, to the point and aim to offer a transparent approach to all parties.

Our multi-lingual staff (Romanian, Polish, Portuguese and Southern Yorkshire) are on hand to offer unlimited assistance via phone, email, SMS, WhatsApp, portal messaging and website 'contact us' page.

Jobs Board

The Orbital Job Board service is packed full with the latest vacancies.

As part of our employer obligations we offer a job board service that can assist the workforce when looking for their next assignment and can also assist agencies that want to advertise their latest available roles.

Fully on-boarded with the Good Work Plan

We want clients and contractors to fully understand the method of getting someone paid and what services we offer, which is why we take the on-boarding process seriously.

This approach ties in with the Good Work Plan initiative that became law in 2020. We were already doing many of the GWP requirements including itemised payslips and clarity on what deductions can come off a worker’s pay etc.

So, we welcome the extra compliance steps like Key Information Documents to guarantee that all of the contract chain now have transparency and written confirmation on each payroll engagement.

Business Accolades

We have gained a number of industry recognised accreditations and business awards as part of our ongoing growth.
