FAQsWhat you need to know about hiring contractors

Contractors add value to your business without incurring substantial risks or headcount-related costs and issues. They can be hired to cover permanent staffers’ holidays, parental leave, urgent projects, as well as an extra pair of hands during busy periods. Furthermore, they help to maintain day-to-day tasks while you recruit for a permanent role.

The base compensation for hiring contractors might look more substantial when compared to a permanent role, but there are other factors to take into consideration, such as taxes, employee benefits and insurance. Since companies are not obliged to pay contractors any of the above, it is thus a more cost effective strategy.

We offer a dedicated payroll service so that your contractors will be paid on time and accurately.

There are several disadvantages that employers should know about. For one, contractors are typically hired for short-term work, which means that integrating company culture might be more challenging; secondly, contractors typically request a higher salary due to a contract-based employment; finally, since contracts tend to include a stipulated end date, it is sometimes harder to retain a contractor’s services in the long run.
