We have made it straightforward for contractors to create and add their invoices for payment at any time of the month. 

This article covers the following topics:

How to create and submit an invoice

As a contractor, you can submit your invoices from the Invoices tab by clicking on the New Invoice button. You will have two options:

  • Upload your own invoice: You will create an invoice that includes the invoice date and invoice amount. You can then submit the invoice as a PDF.
  • Create an invoice on Remote:
    1. You will be prompted to input the invoice details.
    2. Itemize your invoice and assign the individual costs per invoice item.
    3. You can also create a recurring invoice that is automatically sent to your employer based on the frequency you set.

Managing invoices

You can view all the invoices you have submitted from the Invoices tab. Your invoices will be broken up based on those that are one-time invoices and those that are recurring invoices. You can edit your invoices as long as they have not been approved yet. Once your invoice has been approved, you will no longer be able to make any changes.

Contractor's invoicing currency

Remote can pay contractors in 170+ countries around the world through our combination of:

Although your invoice must be in the currency of your employer (you can do the conversion calculation yourself when invoicing), we will always pay you in your preferred currency as long as it's a currency we support.

Paying out funds

Once you submit your invoice, your employer is notified. They will need to first approve the invoice and make payment for it. Once we receive payment from the client, we pay out the funds to you. The amount of time it takes for us to receive payment from the client largely depends on the payment method they use when making payment to us. This is how long each payment method takes: 

  • Wire Transfer: typically settled in the contractor's account in 2-6 business days.
  • ACH and SEPA: typically settled in the contractor's account in 6 to 9 business days.
  • Cards: typically settled in the contractor's account 2-4 business days.
