If you are an accountant or bookkeeper who also manages your clients’ payroll, it can take up more and more of your time as you grow your business. Payroll is, after all, a necessity for all businesses with employees and yet it is totally non-productive but simply part of the overhead, in some businesses, a very large part indeed. That is why they have you undertake it in the first place, but in turn it can affect your own business as your payroll gets bigger.
Furthermore, one of the biggest issues with payroll is that it has to be done on time every time. Employees need their pay on payday and HMRC doesn’t like waiting around either.
This is why, at Pay Check, we have developed our UK payroll services for accountants and bookkeepers so that we can take the pressure off, which will let you work on the more profitable aspects of your business. Our services have been designed to provide you with access to the expertise and services that you need and in such a way that they can be tailored to your precise requirements.
We can take on the payroll your company has as we have many clients with only 1 employee and also multiple clients with over 1000employees. When you use Pay Check to run your clients’ payroll, we assign you a dedicated accounts manager to work with you and liaise with you concerning any worries, issues or requirements you may have. You will always be able to rest assured that we will do everything in our power to ensure your payroll will be done on time and done accurately.
We can provide you with a choice of several different partnership models to suit your particular requirements. They include "white label”, direct client invoicing, and assessed retainer fee contracts. We charge an agreed monthly fee for our fully managed outsourced UK payroll services with no hidden charges or extras. These include a secure portal for you, your client, and their employees for reporting and pay documents –payslips, and so on. PAYE registration is included, along with bespoke paperless reporting, management of all statutory responsibilities including SSP and SMP, and year end reconciliation and P60’s.
