Questions & Answers

We’re proud of how we do things at Liquid Friday and strive to give all of our Agencies and Contractors alike complete peace of mind in their dealings with us.

Life as a contractor & consultant involve some tough decisions. Partnering with the experts will help take the hassle out of contracting. We have collated some of the most common questions we have been asked over the last 15 years.

When do you pay me?

Depending on the particular assignment you are working on you may be paid weekly, monthly, fortnightly or on a project-by-project basis. The vast majority of our employees are paid weekly, every Friday, one week in arrears.

 

Sometimes money can be tight, ask the team if you would like to be paid early!

What is NIERS?

All companies in the UK pay Employers National Insurance, which is on top of the employees salary. If you are being paid directly by a Recruitment Agency or Client then this will be paid by them. If you are contracting with Liquid Friday this amount is included within the uplifted rate that Liquid Friday receives for the services you provide.

What is the current Tax Code?

The standard tax code changes each year, for this tax year (2019-20) it’s 1250L. This means you can earn £12,500 per year without paying any tax. If you get paid weekly this means that the first £240 is tax free (or £1,042 if you get paid monthly).

Do I get a pension?

Yes, all entitled employees of Liquid Friday, are automatically enrolled in our pension scheme, run by NOW:Pensions. Alternatively ask the team if you would like us to contribute to a Private Pension.
