Assignments: how do they work and what do I do?
To create a job, click on Assignment in the menu and select New Assignment. A new Assignment form opens and you can enter the details. When done, send the assignment to us at Cool Company. You can also send the assignment to your client so you can both see what you’ve agreed o.
We recommend always pre-registering a new assignment with us. This ensures you have the proper insurance when working at a customer site to do the agreed work.
You can also automatically create an invoice specification based on the form’s content to save time later.
How do I issue an invoice?
To create a new invoice, click on +Create Invoice in the left-hand menu while you’re logged in to our online portal. This will open a new invoice where you enter the details step by step. Once all the details have been entered, accept the terms for using Cool Company’s service and click on Submit. We receive the invoice, check that it’s complete and send it on to your client.
Can I preview what the invoice will look like?
You can pre-check an invoice by clicking on the blue Check button (a small eye on mobile devices) when you’re in the invoice. A PDF preview is created, which shows you exactly what your invoice will look like when it reaches your client.
What happens after I’ve sent my invoice?
Cool Company checks that the invoice is complete and sends it on to your client. All administrative tasks are done by Cool Company. We send the invoice, book the payment, pay taxes and contributions, and send a reminder if the invoice is not paid in time.
You can carry on doing what you excel at as a contractor, and simply wait for the payment to come in. You will be notified by email, and by Timeline message when you’re logged in.
