In the United Kingdom, it is possible to process an off cycle payment for employees if they meet the criteria. An off cycle payment (not related to onboarding) attracts a fee of GBP 150 (excluding VAT). If approved before the deadline, the employee will receive this payment by the 10th of the following month. To request an off cycle payment, please reach out to

The deadline for all off-cycle payment requests that meet the criteria is the 27th of the month, 11:59 PM UTC. Any requests after this date will be rejected and paid in the next payroll cycle. We run off-cycle payments in countries where we have a monthly payroll run (in specific cases, we’ll run an off-cycle in countries where we have a semi-monthly payroll).

If approved, we will make a payment (normally 55% of gross) with no payslip. Employees will see the gross amount and a net deduction of the amount paid noted as "Payment on Account" in the next payroll cycle.
