For contractors looking for a professional employment organisation to take care of their contractor payroll, joining eQuidity could be a highly beneficial move. We will look after the payment process from start to finish and make sure that it is correct, on-time and fully compliant with HMRC regulations.

So, rather than having to spend time managing your own finances, becoming an eQuidity employee allows you to leave the payment process to our experts and concentrate on your work, without having to worry about your payments ever being late or incorrect.

In fact, at eQuidity 98% of the money that comes in to us from agencies or clients is paid out that very same day.

Our payment process

The eQuidity team make sure the money is not only paid out fast, but that it’s always correct to the penny.

You need to submit your timesheets and expenses (if applicable) so that we can correctly calculate your take home pay. Then, your money is processed by CHAPS and will be in your bank account the same day we receive funds from your agency/client.

To sum up, here’s how we get your money to you:

•  Just as soon as we receive funds from the agency or client you’re working on assignment with, we’ll make sure everything matches your online records before processing them.

•  We’ll immediately calculate your tax and NI contributions and make payments to HMRC on a PAYE basis.

•  At the same time, we’ll also factor in any tax relief for allowable expenses as well as calculating any tax benefits you may be entitled to.

•  Then we’ll transfer the net pay into your bank account (we run payroll every day, not once a month like some other companies, to ensure you get your money super fast)

•  We’ll email you a detailed payslip showing your final take home pay following statutory deductions and details of any additional payments and benefits such as pension contributions, expense claims, holiday pay and National Minimum Wage.

Sound good? Well we thought we’d outline exactly what our employees find helpful from our payment process to give you an even better picture of what to expect from us:
