Administering One-Off Payments
One-off payments should only be made to individuals in genuine one-off circumstances and should not be made to existing QMUL staff.
Normally, individuals carrying out short-term work for QMUL are paid through payroll and are on an appropriate contract. However, it may sometimes be appropriate to make a payment to someone for a one-off piece of work or to contract with them to supply services on a self-employed basis.
Please see our Employed vs Self-Employed page for information on determining the correct employment status.
Should an individual have a genuine self-employed status then payment for their services should be arranged via the Finance Department.
One-Off Payments Administered by the HR Department
All payments are subject to UK HMRC regulations and to Pension Auto Enrolment regulations - deductions will be made in relation to this if applicable.
