Working with Root Systems as a contractor


  • Contractor receives 65% of charge-out rate to client
  • Root Systems receives 35% of charge-out rate

The 35% Root Systems receives is to cover the risk involved with taking on a contract. Shit can happen and all legal responsibility is held by Root Systems.

It also covers the cost of finding contracts. We can spend a lot of unpaid time working with clients to find work. We also work with Golden Pandas and pay them a retainer + commission every month.


You are expected to send an invoice to Root Systems Limited at the first working day of every month.

Invoices are to be dated as last day of the month worked. E.g if you're invoicing for the month of May, make sure the invoice is dated 31 May.

Please send your invoices to and cc in

Invoices will be paid by the 20th of every month.

Time Tracking

We recommend using Toggl. Please ask a Root Systems member to be invited to our Toggl team.


If you have any expenses that need claiming, include this in your monthly invoice along with the related receipts.
