Costs

Interims are in high demand and usually required at short notice. Catandra can introduce you to our tried and trusted network of specialist interim professionals available for immediate start.

Engaging interims – balancing costs with flexibility and contractual exposure
Interims usually charge by the day. They can be engaged on a rolling basis for absolute flexibility, or for a fixed period (on a fixed term contract). The more flexible the terms, the less risk you are exposed to but the more you can expect to pay (see our day rate calculator). Permanent employees enjoy induction and a grace period when joining a business. Interims are not so fortunate and after a brief induction are expected to hit the ground running, making an impact from day one.

Legal structure and billing
Professional interims bill your business directly based on their day rate through a registered limited company. Sole traders can also invoice through an umbrella company. The professional pays the umbrella company a fee to look after their tax and National Insurance liabilities, accounting for their expenses. Interims engage with multiple clients across the tax year, avoiding possible complications with employment law and taxation.

Our fees
When we work with interims we bill you a percentage of their agreed daily rate. This ensures transparency and has no bearing on the fee rate the professionals are earning. 

For fixed term contracts we charge a one off fee that covers the duration of the assignment.
