Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an independent contractor and an employee?

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.

Will funds be released to talent as soon as I pay?

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.

Why does Any Hire show such a large range on the employer burden costs?

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
