Invoicing and Payroll Partner
The Contingent – Our invoicing and payroll partner
Whether you are a contractor, hiring organisation or a placing agency, we understand that there is a real complexity and significant administrative burden resulting from contractor engagements.
To ease this pain we have introduced The Contingent as our administrative and payroll partner to the Crackerjacks offering.
Crackerjacks provides safe and secure access to The Contingent platform where contractors and hiring managers can process timesheets, view historic activity and keep personal details updated. Our contractors and businesses have complete control through The Contingent’s automated process.
All funds are held in a commercial trust account and are validated by ASB Bank to be third party funds. These finds are unable to be used by The Contingent for any purpose other than for contractor payment purposes.
