Green Lantern was formed in 2002 and is one of the UK’s best trusted providers of umbrella company and specialist accountancy services for contractors and freelancers.
Green Lantern was originally formed in 2002 by four IT contractors, who have seen the days of the IT and freelance market rise, fall and rise again. With over 15 years in the contracting industry and after working with so many different contractor payroll services and never finding true satisfaction in any of them, they decided to turn to one of the big four accountancy firms to provide a payroll management solution especially tailored round contractor payroll which would suit the individual needs of contractors and freelancers in the UK.
We’ve worked with that firm and our industry body, Professional Passport, throughout numerous legislation changes and changes to the market and so have always been at the forefront of fully compliant and effective payroll management solutions. Having initially worked on our umbrella company offering, we have expanded our service options and now provide full accountancy services, including contractor limited company options.
Added to this original knowledge is the expertise of our management team and staff, who each have many years’ experience in providing high quality solutions to both contractors and recruitment companies, and who have also management level experience in contractor recruitment, knowing exactly the requirements of agencies when dealing with an umbrella company or accountancy practice.
This practical experience coupled with safety and compliance, including being a fully approved member of Professional Passport, makes Green Lantern Group the business of choice for contractors and recruitment agencies throughout the UK.
