For freelancers, contractors, locum doctors, consultants and self-employed
Becoming a contractor or freelancer can be a daunting decision but it can also be very rewarding providing you have the finances sorted. There are a selection of ways of getting paid as a contractor and the One Click Group can help you decide which method is best for you.
This is the simplest way of getting paid. You become an employee of One Click Umbrella and we invoice your agency on your behalf based on your timesheets. Once we have received payment from your agency, we calculate the tax and National Insurance due, offset any expenses that might be allowable and make the net payment into your account every week or month.
There’s very little paperwork involved – typically we can accept timesheets from your agency – and you get all of the benefits of being an employee of a large company with the freedom to select your own assignments. You will benefit from Statutory payments such as Statutory Sick Pay and Statutory Maternity pay and can even take advantage of the One Click Rewards scheme.
We charge a flat margin for this service of only £27.50 per week and this covers everything including the compulsory insurance that your agency requires. If you are paid monthly, the margin is only £85 per month. These margins are taken from the gross amount we receive from your agency so you effective receive tax relief on them, reducing the cost to you.
