How do you get paid?
  • Umbrella Workers – as an employee of the umbrella company they will process payment to you following submission of an authorised timesheet and invoice. Expenses may also be claimed as a tax deduction and often additional employment benefits such as childcare vouchers; insurance and pensions are included.
  • Self-employed – this method is only available for contractors or locums who are not under the Supervision, Direction or Control of the Client and meet HMRC’s definition of self-employed.
  • Own Limited Company – often referred to as a Personal Service Company (PSC), you would be a Director of your own limited company submitting timesheets through the Sellick Partnership portal and submitting your own invoices. This would be suitable for long term professional contractors.
  • Agency PAYE – you engage directly with Sellick Partnership as an agency worker under a contract for services. You are working on the Sellick Partnership PAYE scheme but you are not an employee. To be paid you must submit a weekly timesheet as per PAYE deadlines, the payment you receive will be after all statutory deductions have been made.
