Timesheet Portal Recruitment Edition Features

We understand that recruitment agencies requiring time, expense and invoicing facilities have different needs to other businesses, which is why we developed a tailored solution just for recruitment agencies.

Our recruitment edition allows you to easily chase up timesheets and produce invoices automatically, ensuring you can bill your clients and pay your contractors on time. Furthermore, it can be integrated to a variety of recruitment databases, allowing for seamless operation between your recruitment database and time/expense tracking system without any duplication of data entry.

Database integration

To create a completely transparent solution, Timesheet Portal can be integrated with recruitment front office systems, as well as back office payroll systems. This will automate the process of exporting your placements, clients and candidates from your own system into Timesheet Portal. For smaller agencies with less than 100 employees on payroll, Timesheet Portal provides features for payroll export, and can be quickly configured for creating timesheet invoices in Sage (or you could use the internal Invoicing Module). We can provide tailored solutions for companies using other back office software.
For larger agencies, we recommend a fully automated end to end solution. Our partner company Cambridge Recruitment Software Solutions offers a product called Opera II Recruitment, which provides an entire back office solution, combining payroll, billing, and financial accounting within a single application. Combine this with Timesheet Portal, and you can automate the entire process of capturing worker's time, paying them and invoicing your clients.

Account Branding

Customise your portal with your own corporate colour scheme and logo to maintain consistency with your brand when your clients and own staff access the portal. Configure the look and layout of your login page and also create completely bespoke client invoices.

  • Customise the colour scheme to match your corporate colours
  • Upload your company logo so that it appears on all pages of the system
  • Customisable login page, where you can specify your own HTML and brand the page is if it were yours
  • Customise email templates and email addresses so they appear to come from your own company
  • Can have branded domain names e.g., or use your own domain

Contractor Self Billing

Our self billing module provides you with the ability to automatically generate invoices on behalf of your contractors to be sent to your own agency for payment. This cuts down on the manual work required by the contractors as all they need to do is approve the automatically generated invoices which then means they are available for your accounts team to process.

  • Invoices are sent from the contractor with their own company details
  • Contractors can amend their own company and bank details on their invoices
  • Receive automatic notificatoins when contractor invoices are ready to download
  • Store contractor bank details on our system so you have one place with all the information required to pay your contract staff
  • Invoices are linked to timesheets so the contractor cannot invoice twice for the same work

Employment Intermediaries Reporting

The recently introduced HMRC legislation now requires that all employment intermediaries submit quarterly reports containg details of the workers and worker's engagements they have provided to their clients.

Timesheet Portal provides you with the ability to capture all the required information from your workers, and even provides a facility for the worker's to enter this themselves so you don't need to input it all yourself. Our Employment Intermediaries Reporting feature will also produce your quarterly reports in the required format so you can upload it directly to HMRC.
