Our responsibilities each pay period will include:

  • The processing of your payroll
  • Providing a payslip for each employee per payroll process
  • Advising net payments for employees
  • Issuing standard reports
  • Paying net salaries via BACS in accordance with your pay date
  • Remittance of PAYE/NI deductions to HMRC on a timely basis in accordance with statutory rules
  • Submission of ‘Real Time’ Information files to HMRC in line with statutory deadlines

We operate as an approved BACS Bureau and can make payment transfers every pay period on agreed dates, subject to your approval.

Our payroll systems offer the flexibility to meet the needs of our clients by making use of existing sources of information.

We can either take inputs from recognised systems or work with you to develop suitable templates to ensure the accurate recording of information.

We aim to be flexible in our output, our clients have the option of how reports are received, either paper or electronic password encrypted by secure email.

We will agree a processing schedule of timescales with your own organisation’s internal reporting requirements and pay date in mind.

As part of our normal service we would expect to deal with routine HMRC queries and completion of HMRC forms. This would include in year submissions and provision of employee P60’s.
