πŸ“ Editing a contract

Have you noticed a typo after you’ve created a contract? Want to change the compensation? Sure thing! As long as no one has signed the contract, you’ll be able to edit it as you see fit.

 

Improvement

  

πŸ–ŠοΈ Signing a contract after the start date

Sometimes things don't go as planned. Maybe the contract wasn't signed in a timely manner and now the start date has passed. No sweat. If you still want to move forward with the same contract, you can sign it at any time and we will make sure that the contract starts as expected and all invoices are retroactively generated.

 

New

  

πŸ“© Email notifications

To keep you on top of the important contract-related events, you will now receive the following email notifications:

  • A few days before an invoice is due, which helps you prepare in advance for the upcoming payment.
  • Every time a new invoice is generated on behalf of a contractor. This means that an invoice has just been generated and is waiting for your payment.
  • When you have due invoices that are pending payment for more than 5 days.

πŸ’ΌΒ Legal entities as contractors

 

New

  

Now you can compliantly hire legal entities as contractors. Panther will collect all relevant company and tax information, register a business payout method, and adapt the contract agreement accordingly while handling all the compliance.
