How we pay contractors

Pay via ADLIB 
Here it comes down to how you’re set up as a contractor…

You may be a Limited Company Contractor 
You may be represented by an Umbrella Company or
You may be added to the ADLIB payroll (only relevant to PAYE temporary worker)

If paid via our ADLIB payroll, you get paid weekly on Fridays, but we need your completed timesheet for the previous week worked, by 3pm Tuesday to do so.

If you have your own limited company, then our payment terms are 30 days. We pay weekly, on a Monday, but we need your completed timesheet and invoice for the previous week worked, by 3pm Tuesday to do so.

If you are working through an umbrella company our payment terms can vary, it all depends on the umbrella company, but always no later than 30 days.

Direct 
Some of our clients ask us to find the right person for the job,but prefer to take control from there, paying you directly. If you’re not set up as a limited company or working through an umbrella company, this is the only option available. 

 

ADLIB timesheets
We request that you send us a signed (by your line manager) timesheet detailing your hours worked, so we can see that your hours have been approved. Our contractor team will send you a template of one when you start. In some cases you'll need to send a client owned timesheet instead or in addition.

 

Invoices
Your invoice needs to be sent to contractors@adlib-recruitment.co.uk  by 3pm Tuesday with your signed timesheet so we can process it for you in time. Essential inclusions on your invoice, so we are able to process it asap for you:

  • Address it to us: ADLIB, 3rd Floor, St Bartholomews House, Bristol, BS1 2NH.
  • Include your  limited company details (name, registered address and company number). Include your company’s bank account information.
  • If you are VAT registered please break down the VAT and include your VAT reg number for reference.
  • Include the name of the client you are working for.
  • Also include: date/ period it covers; number of days worked, your day rate.
  • And most importantly, the total amount due.

 

Expenses
If that was part of the deal, if your contract includes that you can claim expenses, you need to include them as separate line items on your invoice or your timesheet. Please also send us photographs of your receipts, as often clients will ask us for copies for their records.

 

Documents we need from you
When you contract through us for the first time, we’ll need to gather a few bits and pieces from you.

If you are contracting as a limited company, you will need to meet with your ADLIB Recruitment Consultant and provide your RTW documents. We will also need copies of:

  • Your Ltd Company Name and Registered address.
  • Copy of the Registration Document.
  • Copy of the VAT registration certificate, if the company is VAT registered.
  • Copies of Insurance Certificates (eg Employers Liability Insurance, Public Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance).
  • Proof of Business Bank Account.
  • Home Address info.
  • Proof of NI Number.

If you are a temporary worker (PAYE) we’ll need:

  • You to meet with your ADLIB Recruitment Consultant and provide your RTW documents.
  • To complete a New Employee Form to add you to our payroll.
  • Your most recent P45 for the current tax year or a completed P46 which can be downloaded on this page.

 

Contractor insurance
In some cases it’s a contractual requirement that you have relevant business insurance. Insurance protects you as well as us against risk. Industry standard is cover up to £1M but some of our clients may require extra cover.

 

Resources
We are also constantly working on new tools that could help you. Scroll down to view and download some of our contractor guides that could help you with finding the day rate that you should be charging.
