How can we help you with your payroll requirements?

Let us take away the headache of managing your payroll. We can provide a complete payroll service, or just the specialised services you need. We’ll listen carefully to your requirements – to ensure efficient payroll management, no matter how big or small your business.

You’ll receive comprehensive yet easy-to-read reports, tailored to your business. And, unlike some suppliers, we provide real-time information submission as a standard part of our service..

As an approved BACs bureau, we meet stringent standards and you benefit from faster and more secure payments. It also means we can process salaries, PAYE, third-party payments and split payments.

Do you have fixed time slots for processing payrolls? 

No, we’re flexible and can change timings on a month-by-month basis to meet the demands of your business.

Can you help with my nominal ledger journal? 

Yes, we can create a bespoke journal and populate it for you. Then you’ll just need to enter it into your preferred accounting system.
