  • Referrers should not directly submit Candidate information to CoW.

Referral bonus and invoice

  • The Referrer becomes eligible to receive the full referral bonus of five thousand USDC or USD (6,000) after three (3) months from the Candidate's start date, provided that the Candidate remains providing services to CoW during this period. The Referrer can decide if they want to be paid in USDC or USD.
  • The referral bonus is excl. VAT (VAT can be added), but net of any other tax, such as, income tax or withholding tax.
