Payment Procedure

In order to ensure you receive accurate and prompt payment, please make yourself familiar with our procedures.

Timesheet

Payment is made only on receipt of the top two copies of the timesheet, duly dated and signed by a representative of the client. To avoid delays in receiving pay, please ensure you complete your timesheet correctly and attach any additional paperwork to the timesheet.

Expenses will only be payable where written approval has been obtained from the client and a signed expense claim form has been received along with ALL supporting receipts.

View a guide to completing your timesheet.

Payroll is run every morning of the working week except Fridays and Public Holidays.

Method of Payment

A BACS form with your bank account details should be completed and sent in to our Accounts Department with your first timesheet.

Your remittance is computed automatically and will be forwarded to you each week. Your monies will be paid directly into your bank account via BACS (Bankers Automated Clearing Services), a fast efficient system, dispensing with the need for cheques. You can expect payment two working days after your timesheet has been processed; meaning a correctly completed timesheet received by mail on a Monday morning will be processed that same day and the money cleared into your account by Wednesday.

Limited Companies

If your services are through a limited company, before payment can be processed we require:

  • A signed copy of your contract.
  • We operate a self billing agreement to speed up the process of payment. This means you do not need to send in your invoice for payment as we will raise this automatically.
  • At the beginning of your first assignment, you must send a copy of the Certificate of Incorporation issued by the register of companies and a copy of the VAT registration certificate (if applicable) to our Accounts Department before any payments can be made.
  • If you are being paid by BACS, the bank account must be in the name of the Limited Company and must be a UK bank account.
