Here are some of our most frequently asked questions: 

How much do I get paid?

Once taxes, fees and the Cool Company fee have been deducted, you receive your salary, which is between 60-70% of your invoiced amount, VAT excluded.

When do I get my salary?

You can receive your salary once your assignment giver has made the payment. If you choose the corresponding setting, your salary will be paid out automatically. Otherwise you can choose manual payment and decide for yourself when and how much you can receive in salary.

Please remember that it takes 2-4 banking days before the money becomes visible on your bank account.

What is the cost of using Cool Company?

We take 6.98 % of the invoiced amount, VAT excluded.

You set the price yourself together with your assignment giver. Once you have completed an assignment, you fill in the form by entering the invoice information and payment conditions.

Cool Company helps you with all of this:

– Reporting and paying taxes to HMRC
– Paying your salary onto your account, with taxes deducted
– Access to full employment protection
– Comprehensive employer’s insurance

This will leave you with more time to either work on your projects, and maintain that essential work-life balance.
