How contractor invoicing works

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. Select your preferred currency while entering the amount.
    4. You can also create a recurring invoice that is automatically sent to your employer based on the frequency you set.

You have the option to set your desired invoice amount in your local withdrawal currency, or your employer’s billing currency. Depending on your choice, Remote will automatically convert the funds received from your employer to your local withdrawal currency. For payments processed via Wise, Remote will guarantee that you receive the full invoiced amount in your local currency and protect you from currency fluctuations.

Managing invoices

You can view all the invoices you have submitted from the Invoices tab. Your invoices will be broken up into those that are one-time invoices and those that are recurring invoices. Once you've submitted your invoice, if it hasn't been approved and paid for yet, you can delete it and submit a new one.


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.
