Why has my Agency quoted me a PAYE rate and a Limited Company rate?

freelancesupermarket.com - showcasing freelance services

If you opt to work through an agency you may be quoted two rates – one which will apply if you work PAYE through their payroll, and another ‘higher’ rate if you use an Umbrella or limited company.

You are quoted a lower rate for working PAYE at the agency because the agency takes on all the employer responsibilities and, all the financial obligations that are involved, including handling employer's National Insurance contributions and managing your payroll.
