What does it cost to hire with Grafter?

Grafter is completely free for workers. We only charges 10% (plus VAT) of the grafter fee to the clients. This fee includes use of the platform to help manage the job, all transaction & payment fees and having our team on hand to help.

Our fees are completely transparent, so you know exactly what the worker get’s paid and how much we charge. Unlike agencies who hide their fees in an overall higher day rate, and sometimes get away with as much as double in the hidden mark-up!

Grafter is the most secure way to find and hire temp workers online. All conversations are secure and recorded, without having to give-out your contact details. You get a work agreement with details agreed and document up-front, to help avoid any disagreement later. Worker ID is verified so they are traceable through their bank details. Payment is cashless and secure.  You also get to review workers to keep them keen, or to post an honest review if they don’t do a good job. Finally our team is on hand to help with any issues.

Who is responsible for PAYE / Income Tax?

By joining the service all grafters self-certify as self-employed. This means the grafters are responsible for their own tax reporting and payments.

The exception is if you are a ‘Construction Industry Scheme’ (CIS) registered employer, then you will have to set the rate for the job and pay the grafter the Net amount. Then complete your CIS return and pay the tax as normal.
