Our Outsourced Payroll Services

We offer a comprehensive range of payroll services to suit our client’s requirements, giving them as much or as little involvement in their payroll as they like. Examples of services we generally provide to clients include:

  • Transferring payroll from an existing payroll provider
  • Setting up payroll for new employees
  • Registering your business as an employer with HMRC
  • Providing employees with secure electronic payslips every pay period
  • Support with resolving any queries from HMRC
  • Providing employees with any payroll related documents that are required such as P60s, P45s, SMP, SSP and SPP
  • Calculating redundancy and holiday pay for all employees
  • Processing any pay additions such as overtime, bonuses, salary increases etc
  • Ensuring your business meets ongoing pension auto-enrolment duties

Fully Managed Monthly Payroll Services

Although some employers choose to only outsource parts of their payroll, many opt for a fully managed service – giving them the peace of mind that every aspect of their payroll is being handled by a qualified professional.

Using a managed payroll service is like having your very own in-house payroll team, without the associated costs of software and dedicated members of staff. Additionally, we provide a bespoke managed payroll service for local authority direct payments.

  • A dedicated member of staff responsible for your payroll

  • Ensure compliance with the latest legislation from HMRC
  • Reduced administrative and staff costs
  • Improve staff satisfaction by ensuring they are always paid accurately and on time
  • Increased accuracy and reliability
