I’m a new start up Contract agency should I be using TBOS Freedom?

Our fees are based on your productivity so if you’re starting out this is very cost-effective from day 1.

I have a bad personal credit rating, will TBOS Freedom fund my contract placements?

TBOS bases its funding decisions on the clients you are invoicing, they are not based on the financial history of the Recruitment Director. If you have bad credit or no assets this will not affect you using our TBOS Freedom plan as the debts are fully insured. TBOS will distribute the profits once the client has made payment.

How much does TBOS Freedom cost?

The charges for our TBOS Freedom are 3% of the invoice value to the client (including VAT) which includes the cost of the contract and invoicing administration, credit insurance and funding costs.  We highly recommend you give our team a call to discuss your specific needs.

Are there any additional costs that I need to be aware of with TBOS Freedom?

The 3% of the invoice value to the client (including VAT) includes all of the charges required to manage the placement and there are no additional set-up charges or fees to run credit checks.  We highly recommend you give our team a call to discuss your specific needs.

What happens if my client goes bust mid contract? Will I still get paid?

All funded placements made with TBOS Freedom are credit insured which is included on the 3% charge.  TBOS constantly monitor our clients to ensure that all of your debt is insured.  Should your client go into administration or liquidation or can’t pay/won’t pay within 120 days then you will be reimbursed in full (minus a £500 first loss).

If TBOS produce the contracts and invoices, how do I retain my identity on the placement?

The contracts are created and signed between your client/candidate, you as the agency and TBOS as the service provider. As the Agency you are named as the owner of the client/candidate and placement and are ultimately responsible for the conduct of the placement. TBOS acts as the Service Provider, we are responsible for administering the contracts and invoicing, funding the candidate and receiving the funds from the client.

What happens if a client wants us to use their contract template instead of the TBOS Freedom template?

In this circumstance, TBOS will work with the client and our legal team to add the appropriate clauses to ensure that all parties are protected within the transaction. This would either be in the form of an amendment letter or changing the existing contracts so that TBOS can also sign on the contracts.

It is Friday lunchtime and I have a contractor starting on Monday morning, can you help fund my placement with TBOS Freedom?

As long as all the details we require are sent to TBOS immediately then we can produce the Service Level Agreement, complete the credit check and raise the contracts for signature within 3 hours (UK placements only).

My client has 60 day payment terms and I want to pay my candidate after 30 days, is this possible?

TBOS works to your payment terms and schedules. We do not have weekly or monthly deadlines and we ncan pay within the terms that you set. This means you have greater control over your candidates and fees.

I have a potential contractor working in Europe in Euros, can TBOS Freedom help me?

Yes, we have many year experience in funding contractors abroad, even more so Europe. Please note the weekly fee will slightly increase as it is an overseas placement and credit check can take up to 48 hours to complete.
