Frequently Asked Questions

blank
Who is responsible for taxes on earnings In Clinical Lab Advisor?
It is the duty of the Advisor to ensure that they are in compliance with the relevant tax policies that are applicable to them. The Clinical Lab Advisor system will not take into account the applicable sales tax for the area in which an Advisor lives. Clinical Lab Advisor strongly encourages its advisors to seek professional tax assistance.
How much should I charge?
The amount you charge depends upon your professional experience and the market value of your expertise. Typically, those who are more senior charge between $3 and $4 per minute, and those with less experience charge around $2 per minute. However, Clinical Lab Advisor allows its advisors to set their own rates for consultations and will work with advisors to update their rates as needed.
When do I get paid?
Clinical Lab Advisor pays earnings immediately. Delays may exist through Advisor’s banking institution.
Are there membership fees?
Clinical Lab Advisor is completely free for our experts. There are no signup or subscription fees. The site operates on a commission-based model, charging a commission on each consultation/sale.

Making sure your profile details are up to date will ensure you’re reaching the right members.
