Nicoll Curtin is committed to providing the best service possible to our contractors. The most important aspect of our service for contractors is undoubtedly getting paid on time! We want to make sure that all of our contractors get paid promptly, with no hassle or delays. So help us to help you by following the below process:

  • Timesheets must always be completed unless your consultant has advised you otherwise
  • They need to be authorised by your line manager or another authorising signatory
  • Submit your timesheets on a weekly basis by sending them to, copying in your consultant

Payment Process.

The good news is that invoices are not required! Our self-billing process simplifies your invoicing and payments, saving you time and hassle. Here’s how it works.

  • Easier for you to be paid earlier
  • Reduced admin work as no need to manually create invoices
  • Contractors at clients with online timesheet portals will have the payment process fully automated
  • Improved regularity of payments
  • Simplified single email address for all your invoicing and payment needs

A more detailed process can be found below.

How often will you generate an invoice on my behalf?

Invoice frequency will be determined by your timesheet. If you submit weekly timesheets, you will receive a weekly invoice.

What happens if I have a third-party (accountant, Umbrella company) generate my invoices for me?

We will now generate the invoices and these can be sent to yourself, the third party, or both. All we need is an approved timesheet supplied by either you or the third party.

How do I set this up?

You will be contacted by our finance team who will request some information and have you set up for your first payment. They are more than happy to help with any queries you may have.


Nicoll Curtin runs a payroll each week, paid on Monday, with payment 28 days from receipt of your approved timesheet, unless otherwise stated in your contract. Our timesheet submission deadline is close of business every Monday, in order to guarantee payment within the 28 days. Failure to meet this deadline will result in payment being delayed by a week to the following Monday.
