It has been announced that former Chairman of the Inland Revenue, Sir Nicholas Montagu, KCB, has joined Crystal Umbrella, the professional Contractor’s payment solutions company, as an adviser.
Nick Montagu had a distinguished Civil Service career for thirty years, working under both Conservative and Labour administrations on some of the most challenging and controversial issues. As Chairman of the Revenue in its greatest period of change, he is credited with transforming the Department from one that was secretive and inward-facing into one that is open and customer focussed.
As an adviser to Crystal Umbrella, Nick will be working with the directors to help steer the strategic direction of the company as it builds on its strong growth and consolidates its position as one of the country’s leading Umbrella Companies. Colin Howell, co-director of Crystal Umbrella, commented, “I’m delighted to welcome Nick Montagu on board. His knowledge and experience will be highly valuable in guiding Crystal Umbrella as we move forward in the growth years ahead, with ever more challenging aims and objectives.” Nick Montagu said: “It is a great pleasure to be joining a company like Crystal Umbrella, with its strong values and compliance record. I know from direct experience how invaluable a company like this can be to employees and HMRC alike in ensuring that PAYE obligations are accurately identified and promptly settled. I look forward to working with the Crystal Umbrella team, and hope to deploy my experience to enhance its effectiveness and profile, bringing real benefits to both Clients and Government alike.”
This exciting move for all Crystal stakeholders only helps to strengthen their position as a leading and secure Umbrella Company. With compliance uncertainty still a major industry issue, this move gives Agencies and Contractors peace of mind that the Crystal Umbrella service is built on the foundations of integrity, compliance and professionalism. Contractors will continue to have the first class service offered by Crystal Umbrella, with the knowledge that they are receiving this service that is backed by such a key figure within the industry.
