I took a months deposit for security and then invoiced for the month I'd worked. I will keep the deposit cheque until the end of the contract which means if I'm not paid my months notice that I'll have the cheque as payment.

Hope that makes sense!:thumbsup:

I get paid weekly, and its always on the first working day of the week. Parents find it easier weekly because tax credits pay weekly. Luckily all mine are good payers.

I will work monthly or weekly in advance. I ask parents which they prefer and at the moment they all pay monthly in advance. I am very strict about this and would never work if I had not been paid as I have had problems in the past. I run a business not a charity.
