Contract Payment Process

We recognise the importance of turning around contractor payments as quickly as possible.

We never hold on to funds for longer than needed and have one of the fastest turnarounds on payments in the industry.

  • We reconcile our bank 4 times each day ensuring international payments are allocated and paid out as soon after receipt as possible.
  • All of our international payments are made by ‘international priority payments’ ensuring currency payment are sent as swiftly as possible.
  • We cover the cost of sending the payment by ‘international priority payment’ from our bank account. Most companies send by SEPA, which is significantly cheaper but takes 2-4 days longer to reach the contractor.
  • For contractors being paid in different currencies we have relationships with some of the best FX companies offering preferential exchange rates to 6CATS contractors.
  • We run 4 UK payrolls each day ensuring our UK contractors are paid as soon as we receive funds from our agency clients.
  • All of our UK to UK transfers are sent by ‘Fasterpay’ at our cost ensuring the contractor receives funds within hours of 6CATS running the payroll.

This week I had a bit of an issue with my salary. As I had left my last agency and place of work and started my new contract at another council through another agency, the delay in payment of my last week’s salary became a matter of concern to me. I communicated with Karl who provided me with EXCELLENT client service and support. He chased my wages from the agency and kept me updated as it went along. I am very impressed by his support and care to me. I thought I should write a line or two to you for you to know how good he is at his work. I thank him and your firm for being good to me. I hope we will continue our professional relation for as long as I am working in this kind of work. I may add here that in the past at one of the councils, I was forced to switch to one of their ‘ approved ’ umbrella companies. I tried to convince them to let me continue with your firm but they didn’t let me. As soon as I finished contract with that council, I returned back to 6CATS. I hope you will send Karl a word of encouragement too and give him good appraisals.
