UK Payroll Services
Although we only run UK payrolls we do have a large number of overseas clients for which we operate payrolls for their UK operations, giving assistance with UK laws and regulations as well as providing payment facilities if needed.
Our clients from a wide variety of organisations, service providers and manufacturers. And the proof of our capability is the fact that our clients grow and stay with us year on year.
Our motivated payroll teams are based in the UK and ensure a high quality personalised relationship where your point of contact will be specific members of a team. This leads to increased consistency and peace of mind from a specialist payroll company.
Customers that take advantage of our Managed Payroll Services tell us that the big benefit to them is the peace of mind that it brings.
No longer do they have to worry about understanding the finer points of PAYE rules and HMRC legislation but they can rest assured that their payroll is being looked after by a long established payroll provider and an experienced team who explain things to them at a level they can understand.
Real Time Information is the means by which HMRC now takes your payroll data and automatically updates their records in respect of your employees. That requires suitable software to be used in running your payroll so that errors and discrepancies are eliminated.
That is covered by Payplus and your weekly or monthly returns to HMRC will be accurate and something that you will never need worry about.
Although our payroll processing covers every type of business and organisation there are certain types that require specialist teams to deal with their payrolls.
We offer two levels of guaranteed payroll services – Managed service and Bureau service where we will take on all PAYE administration and dealings with HM Revenue & Customs.
Bacs Approved Bureau
The Payplus payroll bureau is authorised to make Bacs payments on behalf of payroll clients who are themselves registered Bacs service users.
This means that on approval of your payroll, payments can go direct from your bank account to your employees and HMRC on the correct dates without you having to worry about doing anything. As a UK payroll bureau accredited by Bacs, Payplus is subject to periodic audits. This gives you absolute confidence that our processes and data security are fit for purpose and safeguard your payroll payments.
Pensions Automatic Enrolment
The introduction of compulsory workplace pensions run by employers for their employees is a huge change for all businesses and organisations. It adds yet another layer to the payroll and administration processes.
At Payplus we make the introduction of auto enrolment as simple as possible for our clients and that includes:
- Giving an understanding of the Automatic Enrolment process and obligations.
- Selection and implementation of a suitable pension scheme.
- A payroll process that fully integrates the assessment of staff and the calculation and deduction of pension contributions.
- Dealing with staff opting out and opting in.
- Paying over of those contributions to the pension provider and reporting to them.
- Issuing the Declaration of Compliance.
The Payplus Managed Payroll Service covers everything you need for Pensions Automatic Enrolment compliance.
Payroll For Accountants
Many accountants provide a payroll service for their clients. This has worked well for many years with the accountant knowing their clients business and the client having a known point of contact for payroll queries. However, with the introduction of Pensions Auto Enrolment many accountants are questioning the sense in adding another layer of complexity to those payrolls when they haven’t necessarily got the specialised knowledge or software to deal with it effectively.
At Payplus we can take the payroll responsibility away from accountants and either deal with the clients direct or else deal with the accountant so that they still act as the go between with their clients.
In either case the accountant can spend the time freed up on other fee earning opportunities and the client maintains an exceptional payroll experience.
Human Resources (HR) in its broadest sense is the staff within a business and organisation. The normal understanding of the initials HR is the department or function within a business that looks after its people and processing the payroll is a part of that.
HR is then extended to deal with the hiring, well-being and firing of staff and the systems that surround those activities.
In truth most small businesses struggle to deal with these wider HR aspects and so need the paperwork, systems and structure to enable that to occur effectively.
At Payplus we can put that structure in place for you in terms of manuals, template documentation, a retained HR advice service and telephone support.
- Less costly than very large payroll companies, accountants and other payroll providers
- No hidden extras: what we quote is what you pay
- Service guarantees and no long-term lock-in
The proof of our capability is the fact that our clients grow and stay with us year on year.
