Frequently Asked Questions
While there’s no single factor and varies by country, independent contractors and employees differ in several ways. Note: We are not providing legal advice.
Independent contractors are self-employed individuals; they provide their own tools and equipment, pay their own taxes, and are not constrained to specific hours or locations, working on a project basis.
Employees are the reverse; an employer employs them, they receive benefits and protections, have taxes withheld, their work is dictated by the employer, and work on an ongoing basis, conducting services directly related to the employer’s core work.
Any Hire currently supports payment by major credit or debit card, and by PayPal. ACH payment (payment through a U.S. bank account) is also available for eligible clients who will be notified via email to set up ACH as a payment method. You can set up your primary payment method on your client dashboard.
An organization that takes legal responsibility for employing people, to remove the hassle of things like paying employees internationally, organizing taxes, benefits and insurance.
We pay talent after you are successfully charged and a four-day security period has passed. Once you are charged, talent will see the payment as pending, and after the hold period is over they will see the funds as available.
For example, if your payment method is successfully charged on Monday, your talent will see the funds the same day and will be able to withdraw them by that Friday. Any delay in charging your payment method delays your talent’s payment by the same amount.
Each country, and in many cases regions within a country, have their own laws and regulations which influences the employer burden for payroll contracts. Since Any Hire is a global product offering, it is difficult for us to provide a more detailed estimate until you provide Any Hire with more details
We stay up-to-date with legal requirements around the globe. If there are legal changes that impact your engagements, we will address them as appropriate.
Your talent completes work based on the type of contract you set up (hourly, salaried, or project-based work). You are billed every two weeks for any completed work across all contracts. You make one payment to us every two weeks and we handle the rest.
