Frequently Asked Questions

How do Excel Resourcing Contractors get paid?

At the end of every week (if less than a week then at the end of your placement) submit your timesheet showing all the hours you have worked. This has to be approved and signed by your Excel manager. Your timesheet has to be with Excel Resourcing before 9 am on Monday morning.

As long as the timesheet is received on time, and all is approved, then you will be paid on the Friday of the same week.

When starting with Excel Resourcing, you will be asked how you wish your wages to be paid.

There are two options:
• Via an umbrella payment company
• Via your limited business.
Excel Resourcing welcomes the registration of contractors that are working as a limited business. We must have copies of all of your limited companies documentation, you’ll be be asked to register your details with an umbrella company, who manage our payroll, and submit your invoices directly to them.
This means you will be paid the full amount of your wages paid directly into your business bank account.
As a limited business, you can expect to take home 75-80% of your pay on a contract, compared to 60-65% via an umbrella payment company. If you are solely a vehicle technician with no MOT tester license, we encourage you to work with us via a limited business.

I have penalty points on my MOT testing history?
If this is the case then we are unable to accept you as a candidate.
If I choose to can I just freelance at weekends/during my holidays?
Excel Resourcing happily take on contractors to do weekend work only even if you are in full-time employment.
Only want to work when you are on annual leave this is fine  (but only if it is allowed by their main employer’s policy).


Is freelancing flexible with Excel Resourcing?
Contract work is as flexible  as you can make it, you will be asked for your availability on a regular basis by your Excel Resourcing manager.  If there are times when you can’t work, then let your Excel Resourcing manager know of this at the earliest opportunity.
If you are offered a job and cannot commit, you need to make your Excel Resourcing manager aware of this. Just because you are unavailable for a job will not affect your chances of future work.
Do I need my own tools?
If you are in a vehicle technician or bodyshop role will be asked to use your own tools.
Can anyone help me with my expenses?
Your expenses should be managed by your umbrella company/payroll administrator, so contact them directly if you have any to put through or if you have any questions regarding expenses.
