How can an Umbrella Company Help with Contracting in Cayman Islands?
Umbrella companies in the Cayman Islands “employ” contractors, but don’t make any decisions about your workload, clients or anything to do with your day to day operation. They simply process your payments by billing and collecting money from your clients, calculating your taxes and sending you a net wage. This is equivalent to the PAYE (pay as you earn) system employed by many companies, and it makes handling your tax in the Cayman Islands a lot simpler. The fact that they technically become your employer helps you get your working visa in the Cayman Islands with minimal fuss.

Generally, you need to have an employer sponsor in order to secure the appropriate work permit and work visa for the Cayman Islands
If you’re working independently, it can be difficult to find clients willing to sponsor you. Moreover, even if your client can do this, you’ll need a new sponsor each time you decide to take on a new contract. Of course, every new sponsor will mean more paperwork.
Also, are you familiar with the intricacies of the tax system in the Cayman Islands, as well as your own country’s laws on overseas earnings? If so, good on you!
However, if you’re like the rest of us, figuring out (much less reducing) your tax liability in the Cayman Islands and your home country can seem like full-time work in itself.
