As a Paxus contractor, we know that you may need to work off-site at some stage in your contract.

You will need to obtain approval from your normal Hiring Manager to work from home or work off site.

Once approval is granted, please advise us of the change. You will need to complete a self-assessment form on the off-site workstation location from which you are working from.

At Paxus, we use the simple, online FastTrack system so you can submit your timesheet wherever you're working from.

You will need to log into the timesheet portal using your personal username and password. This will take you to a home window showing all timesheet options.

Select Available Timesheets, select the correct week ending date period and enter your times for that week.

Hours must be entered in 24-hour format. Please make sure to double check your daily and weekly totals to ensure all hours were correctly recorded.

Once your timesheet has been completed, click on submit.

If you are eligible to claim expenses, you can enter these into FastTrack together with your timesheet.

Expenses can be recorded under the Reimbursement tab on the timesheet screen.

You must ensure that all expenses are supported by valid receipts showing payment has been made. If expenses cannot be supported by appropriate documentation, these will not be paid.

Public Liability (PL) and Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance covers you against legal liability as a contractor.

PL insurance covers your liability in regards to third party injury or damage to property. PI insurance protects you against any legal accusations regarding errors or negligent acts, including those that cause financial loss to a third party.

It's required that you have both covers while contracting in Australia. At Paxus, we can provide this for you for a fee of 1%.
