It takes my agency 48 hours to process the payment over the weekend so my Umbrella wont receive the money until 30 July and then payment into my bank on the 31st July.
    If the timesheet was signed off on 26th, 27th or 28th June, would payment also be 27th July?
    Giving one date, adding up days and saying "it's 33 days" is not very scientific. It might be 30 days + the agent adding on 3 to pay you. It might be End of week 4, it might be 30 days.

    Has the agent confirmed that they do next day bank transfers? It's quite common for them to be the ones using BACS which takes 3 days to clear.

    If your finances are that tight that 28 days is OK, but 33 isn't, then you might need to re-think your career choice and spending patterns.

    Do you not do cashflow management or credit control? Sounds like you should go perm.

    I will still be paid weekly, it will just be delayed by almost 5 weeks. My agency pays the money out as soon as it receives it and has always operated this way for the life of my three contracts I have taken in the public sector through them. I would just like to know why it takes AMS 33 days to pay someone, when Capita could do it in 5!


    As to my spending patterns and finances, I think its none of your business, but thanks for the concern.

    It may be something to do with the willingness to factor invoices.

    Because they can.

    But also cash flow and investment - the longer the money is in their account the more they can earn on it - or if they were paying you before they get paid then they would be reducing their debt liabilities.

    In terms of your finances - if you do see yourself as genuinely a company and have set one up then we can easily check up on companies house if we wanna see your accounts.

    If your agent is good, are they using FPS, in which case payment will be in seconds, not overnight.

    Now, what about my other question:

    For how long? Thanks to lots of headlines like this:
    Patients 'could have been harmed' after Capita outsourcing - BBC News
    they are heavily in the brown smelly stuff (about half a billion loss last year, iirc). I'd be very wary of putting myself in a position where they potentially owed me any money right now.

    they owe me a few grand for last week. The payment is already being processed as I've seen the remittance. It will arrive tomorrow. I can cope with that level of exposure.
    Actually their share price went up as they announced the £500M loss. The price plummeted when they hit the shareholders with a stock dilution. They're not going anywhere for a while. In fact they're probably a better buy than Bitcoins for the next few months.

    Default Alexander Mann payment period.

    AMS get paid by the end client and hold on to the money for weeks; what happens if AMS goes bust?
    Hi Paddy

    I am having a similar problem with Alexander Mann. They are refusing to pay me weekly. Do you have any advice on how I can avoid this, in particular if I’ve refused to be bound by their terms?

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards
    Sandy
