Contractor Payment Process

We're transparent about our payment processes, so you have the peace of mind of knowing exactly when and how you're being paid as a contractor. We operate an online timesheet portal where you submit your hours each week. You'll receive login details and instructions prior to your contract start date. Your consultant is available for any timesheet or payment queries, however please note that you are responsible for completing your timesheet submission in order to allow quick and easy payment.

Timesheet Approvals

Timesheets approved by 09:00 AM on a Wednesday, following the approved period, will be included for self-billing and payment on Friday of the same week. Timesheets approved after this hard deadline will be paid on Friday of the following week.

Please ensure your Timesheet Approver is aware of your submitted timesheets and approves them. Payments cannot be processed without an approved timesheet. If you have a problem getting your timesheet approved, please contact your Consultant.

Conduct Regulations

This piece of legislation was introduced by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) to provide workers and hirers with minimum standards they could expect from private sector recruitment agencies and businesses. The regulations are designed to apply to workers who are controlled by the client, which means that not only do the vast majority of contractors simply not require the protection which the regulations bring, but also as skilled professionals in business in their own right are not controlled by their clients so technically the regulations will not apply.
