Timesheet top tips

We know our staff hard – different settings each day or week, new colleagues, new children. It can be full-on, which is why we want to help you ensure that one thing you don’t have to worry about is getting paid.

As you might know, we use a timesheet system. But we’ve found that not everybody is completely sure of the best way to send these in, so here is a quick guide on the do’s and don’ts of timesheets!


This is the ideal way to take send us your timesheet. The image is clear and close to the camera, with all the information visible and easy to read.

The problem with this image is the angle – it’s impossible to read most of the information on the top and middle of the page.

There are a couple of problems here – the paper is not straight, it is much too far away to be readable and there is a lot of stuff going on in the background.

This one is almost right, but the camera is too close to the timesheet. You can’t see the information at the bottom.

Once again, this one is too far from the camera. And you can see past the page into the office – when we receive photos like this we can usually see into people’s homes!

The big problem here is the way that the paper is crumpled. This makes it tricky to read in a number of places, especially the “Total” column.

This seems silly, but it has happened! Please make sure that there’s nothing sitting on top of your sheet.

And finally, watch out for blurry images. Try to hold the camera steady if you can, to avoid things like this.
