Response

I can confirm that we hold some of the information you have requested.

Please note that we have interpreted the term 'umbrella company' to mean a company that acts as an employer to agency contractors who work under a fixed term contract assignment, usually through a recruitment employment agency in the UK. Recruitment agencies issue contracts to a limited company as the agency liability would be reduced.
