We’ll give you the time to focus on growing your business, while we take care of all the things that distract you from sales – from paying contractors and temps on time to invoicing clients to chasing payments to helping make sense of compliance and legislation. We only work with recruitment agencies, so we understand your business – and how best to help.
Cash flow made easy
Cash flow is king for any recruitment business, enabling start-ups to pay their Contractors and Temps on time every time, and established agencies to expand.
That’s why Back Office offers 100% recruitment funding, to eliminate uncertainty and give you the stability and resources you need for success.
Some providers only allow you to draw down as little as 70% of your invoice value until your client pays. But Back Office funds your Contractors’ and Temps’ payments in full, and all of your gross profit, minus only our agreed fees. So you’ll avoid cash flow issues altogether.

Peace of mind is part of the package
You shouldn’t put your business at risk whenever you take on a new client. So unlike many providers, we include unlimited credit checks and credit protection as standard.
We’ll make sure credit checks are easily integrated into your sales process before you supply a single temp or contractor, and establish a credit limit which, as long as you trade within it, protects you if the company goes into insolvency.*
* Excesses apply

Making the complex clear
Employment law, financial restrictions and tax rules can often be complex and confusing. So we make sure you have the expert advice and guidance you need to remain compliant.
For example, we’ll make sure you fully comply with the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR); we’ll manage the Real Time Information (RTI) as part of your tax admin; and we’ll administer your auto enrolment pension arrangements, managing the whole process from setting you up with your chosen provider to overseeing deductions from your temps and making payments either to you or your provider. We’ll also look after quarterly intermediary reporting for Limited contractors.
And as always, we’ll always make sense of legislation and make sure your business stays on the right side of compliance – all as part of our service.

A difficult job done well
Bad debt is a threat to any business. But with good management, tact and diplomacy, the impact can be minimised – or even removed altogether.
We start by getting to know your business better – your dedicated credit controller will build a thorough understanding of you and your clients, to better represent and advise you. We stop problems before they start, by including unlimited company credit checks at no extra cost. And we keep credit limits flexible, to accommodate clients’ growing needs if necessary.
We’ll work hard to resolve clients’ debts while maintaining your relationship with them, and keep you informed of any situations that develop. As a last resort, legal assistance and debt recovery support are included in our service too.

It’s in your name. so we make sure it’s 100% correct!
It’s important your clients have confidence in you. So our procedures make sure your invoicing is right first time, every time.
Not only that, every invoice carries your name, logo and company VAT number. Why? Because it means the sales revenue stays on your books, helping your business profile, credit rating and accountant. And it strengthens your client relationships by promoting your brand, rather than ours.

Keeping you informed
Handing over the day-to-day running of your business doesn’t mean handing over control. In fact, our accurate, easy-to-read weekly reports make it easier to get a complete overview of how well your business is doing, including aged debtor reports and alerts to credit risks, holiday liability for Temps and compliance reporting.
We can also generate customised reports on a monthly, quarterly or individual client basis – just tell us what you need.

Mistakes can cost you dear, both financially and in terms of your reputation. Which is why we take such care to make sure Contractors and Temps are paid correctly, every Friday, and clients are invoiced accurately.
We’re renowned for checking and triple checking everything, providing you with a dedicated account manager who gets to know your business inside out so they can spot anything that looks out of place, and have the systems and processes in place to handle limited contractors and temps, umbrella companies or PAYE.
We’ll handle all the admin – including holiday pay, documentation and deductions, tax and NI and even pensions. All pay advices and invoices are issued with your logo and details, maintaining your client relationship. And we’ll make sure you’re kept up to date with clear, concise weekly reports.

Making VAT as easy as ABC
VAT returns can eat up valuable time and affect your cash flow.
We can’t complete and file your actual VAT return, but we will take care of all output VAT on your invoices, fund VAT for any umbrella companies you use or VAT-registered limited contractors and temps, and present all your VAT entries into one clear, concise document, ready for you to use.
For complete peace of mind, before your due date we’ll send you all the money you need along with your VAT schedule too – so you can submit your return and pay in just few minutes.

We’re here to support you whenever you need it – that’s why so many clients stay with us for so long. Unlike some providers, with Back Office you’ll always have a dedicated Payroll Account Manager and Credit Controller who really get to know your business so they can give you a better, more efficient and more flexible service. They’re just at the end of the phone whenever you need them too, so you know exactly who you’re dealing with – and can get to know and trust them.
