How do you get paid?

  • Umbrella Workers – here you are an employee of the umbrella company, to be paid you must submit a weekly timesheet and the umbrella must send us a matching weekly purchase invoice. We will make payment to the umbrella. They will then process payment to you as your employer after deducting all necessary personal and company deductions. Often the umbrella will provide additional employment benefits such as private health care, insurance, childcare vouchers and enhanced pensions.

  • Own Limited Company – often referred to as a Personal Service Company (PSC), you would be a Director of your own limited company submitting timesheets and your own invoices. This would be suitable for long term professional contractors who work in roles that are classified as outside of the tax legislation known as IR35.

  • Agency PAYE – you engage directly with Sellick Partnership as an agency worker under a contract for service. You are working on the Sellick Partnership PAYE scheme but you are not an employee. To be paid you must submit a weekly timesheet within specified weekly deadlines, the payment you receive from us will be after all statutory deductions have been made. 

Key Information Documents

What is the Key Information Document?

From April 2020 it was a requirement for employment businesses such as Sellick Partnership to provide any temporary workers they engage with a Key Information Document (KID). The purpose of this document is to clearly and succinctly set out the essential information a candidate requires prior to starting an assignment. The aim of the documents set out below, is to promote greater transparency and accountability in the relationship between an employment business and a temporary worker. The requirement to have a KID was developed as a response to increasing concern by the government following the Taylor Review regarding arrangements where a worker is supplied through an intermediary such as an umbrella company.

For your reference the requirement to provide a KID is set out in The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses (Amendment) Regulations 2019, which has amended the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 to contain an additional regulation, 13A, which covers the KID and what it needs to contain. These regulations came in to force from 6 April 2020 and it is now a requirement for employment businesses to provide a KID to all work seekers.
