I recently switched to Bookssorted (https://www.bookssorted.com.au), who
are in Canberra but provide payroll services nationally, and have been
extremely happy with them. Their basic charge is 1.75% and I now get my pay
deposited regularly once a fortnight (even though my services are only paid
monthly). They are an extremely friendly group of people and the manager
was very helpful in answering all my questions but didn't try any 'hard
sell'. Check out their FAQ page on the website to see all their services or
give them a call as I did. (They also have a Facebook page - of course!)
They also pay a referral fee for getting them a new customer, so let me
know if you do choose them! However, I certainly wouldn't recommend them
just for that reason - I'm genuinely very pleased I switched - so be sure
to check out whether they suit you.

Hi Ilana -
I did a similar deal to cover payroll and insurance and the agency (Ambit)
charged the client $6/hour I think. But this was way back (in 2002!) so the
number is probably meaningless. I did this for the initial 3-month contract
because time was very short and this was the simple solution.BTW the client
paid the $6 to the agency on top of my agreed rate.
When the contract was extended I set up a company and took out PI and PL
insurance. The client paid my company directly and the additional (to me)
few dollars per hour more than covered my accounting and insurance costs
for the first year.
Why not shop around... your client may have a preferred recruiter/agency.
Get quotes from them and another couple of agencies and go with the one you
like the best.

atw: Recruiter fees
I am looking for recommendations for a recruiting company I can use for
payroll and insurance purposes only. I am doing some freelance tech writing
work and the company does not deal directly with individuals.
What is the standard percentage taken out of my rate for this service?
Thanks for your help
