Frequently Asked Questions

What is recruitment factoring?

It is giving you access to funds, to pay contractors based on future income from the client.

Our secure funding solutions pay 100% of the invoice value, and recruiters are paid weekly.

What back-office support do I need?

You need a secure, risk-adverse solution to manage your end-to-end, recruitment back-office function. 

Ideally with real-time, transactional financial data and a full audit-trail. 

The service should cover credit limits, online timesheets and remittance, payroll, invoicing and credit-control. 

3R's back-office solution does this for you. As well as having a dedicated team to support you as you grow. 

How are contractors paid?

Your contractors are paid within 2 working days via 'faster payment' to either their Ltd Company bank account or Umbrella Company. 

We run a daily payroll and your contractors will be paid within 2 working days of an authorised timesheet!

We also offer an ad-hoc PAYE facility, at our discretion. 

We do not work with CIS. 

How do you manage credit control?

Our dedicated team will monitor payments daily. You can also, clearly see when client's are late to pay the agreed invoices. 

We have automatic 'chaser' emails built into the platform and can go through to legal proceedings if necessary. 

The team are accessible and able to help manage this with you at any stage. 

What if the client has low or zero credit?

This can happen from time to time. 

Our compliance team work diligently, for you, to assess credit-limits with our insurers and via credit-safe. 

We are able to discuss options to support you in working with clients that have low credit. 

Some client's just cant get credit- anyone who says otherwise probably isn't being honest!

What if my clients don't pay?

Our thorough, diligent credit-checking and 'Confirmation of Hire' - authorisation process means that non-payments are rare. 

If you are making deals that are clear and upfront then it makes the process alot smoother. 

For contract and 'paid on invoice' permanent placements we are paying you upfront and managing credit control for you - bringing you in for support where necessary to manage client relationships. 

If a client goes bust then we have bad-debt protection insurance available, for 90% of the invoice value. 

How does 3R make money?

Simply, we only make money when you do by taking a percentage of each invoice we process.

It's a pay-as-you-go service, with no monthly costs. 

The only time there is an initial fee is for our comprehensive start-up solution, where there is a £400 upfront fee.

Can I transfer from my current provider?


Our expert transfer team will work closely with you, to understand your requirements.

We follow guidelines of the Asset Based Finance Association (ABFA) to fully audit your ledger and buy the existing debt from your existing supplier, on an agreed date.

Simple as that.

We'll train you and your team on the platform and monitor every action closely, to ensure a positive experience for everyone involved!
