Useful to know
  • When Tuta Care supplies your business with staff, you don’t need to provide paid holidays or pay Employers National Insurance payments, saving your business money.
  • Our workers have the right to 11 hours rest between working days, eg if they finish work at 8pm, they shouldn’t start work again until 7am the next day.
  • As standard, we provide our workers with mileage allowance at the rate of £0.25 pence per mile to cover travel arrangements to your business from their registered address (normally home).  This is cross charged to your client account and no deductions are made by Tuta Care.  If you do not want to fund mileage allowance we need to know prior to the commencement of the assignment and it could limit the number candidates willing to accept the assignment and ultimately fill your position.
  • Our billing cycle is every 7 days or following completion of the assignment, whichever is sooner.  You will receive our invoice via EMail PDF, together with a payment link, or you can pay our invoice via BACS payment.
  • Permanent contracts are available which have a duration of 12 months.  Having a permanent contract in place means that we can supply staff more quickly, as we only need confirmation and acceptance of the assignment, and not sign off of a new contract each time you require staff.
