The data protection law in the UK and Europe is changing. From the 25th May 2018, General Data Protection Regulation will come into force, replacing the current Data Protection Act which was passed in 1998.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) dictates huge changes to the way organisations store, process and handle personal data. Data is the new commodity, and GDPR mandates a baseline safeguard on how companies deal with our data. GDPR protects an individual’s right to privacy and applies to all personal data, held in every business.

Companies need to take extra actions to demonstrate their compliance with these regulations, assisting individuals with their rights to relevant information, or they will face heavy fines.

Why is GDPR Important?

The main purpose of GDPR is to ensure personal and sensitive data is protected in today’s modern digital landscape and to provide consistency with data protection laws and rights across geographical borders. This is vital to both organisations and individuals, especially within select industries such as the public sector or recruitment where the use of sensitive data forms an integral part of a business.

Clarity365 Self-Billing

Data management and software solutions provider, Data Clarity today announced the launch of the self-billing invoicing module for Clarity365, the fastest way for recruitment agencies and contractors to get paid.   

Thousands of recruitment agencies have identified the invoicing process as too complex and time-consuming, leading to business inefficiencies and overall frustration. Data Clarity’s timesheet and expenses solution Clarity365’s new self-billing feature tackles these challenges head on with a simplified way to generate self-billing invoices and coordinate the self-billing arrangement between a contractor’s limited company (supplier) and their customer.

Clarity365 self-billing is easy-to-use for both agency and contractor with a built-in online approval workflow that reduces the amount of time spent on invoice management and ensures the client has authorised the amount beforehand.

Recruitment agencies benefit from the ability to take control of the whole self-billing workflow, generating invoices on behalf of the contractor who simply adds their timesheets online or through the intuitive Clarity365 iOS, Android or Windows app. Alternatively, the agency can give the power to the contractor, allowing them to create their own self-billed invoices from approved & invoiced items.

Chloé Farmer, Marketing & Customer Relationship Manager at Data Clarity said, “We are excited to bring our new Self-billing feature for recruitment agencies and contractors to market. This will speed up the payment process for both agency and contractor whilst providing an end to end workflow and audit trail.”

Agencies save hours in time using the online workflow to send invoices to clients instantly. Payment terms can be set to each individual client to ensure payment is received within the given terms.
