To add a new contractor to PayHero, select Manage > Employees. Click the icon and select Contractor.
When initially setting up a contractor, any mandatory fields will have a red asterisk. You can’t progress through the contractor set up until these fields are filled. Other fields can be updated later if preferred.
Enter your contractor's first and last name, and the Display Name will default to their full name (you can change this by editing the Display Name directly). Complete the rest of their Personal Details as desired.
If the contractor is employed through a company and withholding tax is being deducted from the company rather than the individual, set the first and last names of the employee to the company name. The display name can be set to the name of the contractor.
Click Next in the top right to continue.

Start Date - The date the contractor began employment with you.
Default Work - Specify the Work that recorded time will default to unless otherwise specified.
