Simple, quick and affordable. Simple: Even when I first used InStaff I didn’t have any difficulties and not only because I was cared for as a newcomer. An easy platform and a service-orientated company - a good combination. Quick: Not just creating the profiles (master data and search profile) was very quick, but also the inquiries to our offer were presenter quicker than I have expected. Affordable: Good hourly rates and time saving with the personnel selection - two factors that resulted in a reasonable priced offer. Gladly again! (5 stars on )

Simple & fair terms of payment

1) Invoice after service for all EU customers
For national customers: No upfront payment, instead we send you an invoice after your event that is due within 7 days.
For international customers: You pay upfront because an international dunning process would incur too much cost for us.

2) Further payment methods upon request
Upon request you can also pay with debit or credit card. We do not charge fees for this.

3) Exemption of VAT when possible
Foreign clients can be exempted from VAT if they declare their VAT-ID.

4) Fair cancellation conditions
At your booking, our employees receive a labor contract, which guarantees respective wages for a certain work period. Should you have to cancel your request, we will strive to place the personnel with another client (e.g. on the same fair).

Cancellation fees are as follows:
80 % of the agreed upon price, if the hired personnel cannot be placed with another client.
30 % of the agreed upon price, if the hired personnel can be placed with another client.
