FAQ and Useful Information

Limited company setup assistance [fa icon="arrow-down"]
We recommend you seek professional advice if you do not have a limited company setup.

If you need any further assistance, please contact your Business Support Manager.
Professional indemnity insurance [fa icon="arrow-down"]
We recommend that you have a minimum cover of £1 million of professional indemnity insurance.

We also recommend you seek professional advice.
Opt out [fa icon="arrow-down"]

You will receive an Opt Out Notice with your BIE contract.

The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 as amended ("the Conduct Regulations") govern the conduct of the private recruitment industry and establish a framework of minimum standards that candidates and clients are entitled to expect.

Interims can opt out of the application of the Conduct Regulations (except if the assignment involves working with children, the old or the infirm).  Interims cannot opt out in respect of existing “positions” in which they are working (this is the wording in the Conduct Regulations).

Under Regulation 32(9) of the Conduct Regulations, if an interim company and its consultant both agree that the Conduct Regulations should not apply and give notice of that agreement to BIE, this notice is commonly known as an "opt-out notice". 

It is the interim company's and consultant's choice whether or not to opt-out and the interim company and consultant should seek their own advice on whether or not to opt-out.

I haven't received the login details to ETZ [fa icon="arrow-down"]
You will receive your login details once we have received all of your documentation and signed contract. To check what is still outstanding please contact your Business Support Manager.

How do I submit my timesheets? [fa icon="arrow-down"]

Once you have accepted an assignment through BIE you will receive your contract pack which you need to complete and return to us as soon as possible. As soon as we receive this we will set you up on ETZ, our online timesheet portal and you will be emailed your login details.

How do I claim expenses? [fa icon="arrow-down"]

The way expenses claims should be submitted differs depending on whether you are working via a VAT registered or non-VAT registered company.
If your expenses claim is ready for submission, please enter the correct value on your ETZ timesheet for approval by your line manager (ensure the figure you enter is the total NET as the system will apply VAT).

Please ensure relevant copy VAT receipts are forwarded to finance@bie-executive.com to ensure your expenses are paid on time.

You will receive more in-depth instructions with your ETZ log-ins.


When do I have to send you my invoices? [fa icon="arrow-down"]
BIE employs a self-billing system, so you don't need to send us an invoice. Once your timesheets have been authorised, an invoice is automatically created and emailed to you once payment has been made. You will be able to access all of your invoices through the ETZ portal.
