Contractors Frequently Asked Questions

We make payment by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and the funds will be available the following day.

  • If paid weekly the deadline for sending timesheets and invoices is 11pm on Monday following the end of the week worked. Payments will be made on the Wednesday with cleared funds available the following day.
  • If paid monthly the deadline for sending timesheets and invoices is 5pm on the first business day of every month. There will also be a second monthly payroll for people who missed the first deadline. For this payroll, timesheets are due one week after the first deadline. All payments will be made one day after the deadline with cleared funds available overnight.

Payment will be processed on the next payroll.

Greythorn uses the National Australia Bank (NAB) for all payments.
