Can you do my payroll?

We've invested in the powerful Star Professional payroll system which allows us to run payrolls of all types and sizes. Star is used by the top 4 firms of accountants in the UK plus the majority of the top 100 and for good reason - it's the best.

Is migration difficult?

Our experience suggests otherwise and the proven migration strategy ensures it’s actually relatively painless.
  • We can use your existing Sage or Iris backup
  • We convert all the data for you
  • We agree with you how and when your payroll is to be run
  • Our Bureau Management System stores all your clients requirements and preferences
  • Migration takes very little time and can be done at any time of the year
  • Best of all, it’s free

What about security?

Payroll is a highly sensitive issue and demands both a robust and a highly secure environment. We have invested in the appropriate technologies & systems to ensure we achieve this.

These include:

  • Cloud Computing for maximum security & resilience
  • Emailed attachments are encrypted
  • secure e-Payslips portal
  • Reports can be password protected

In addition we are registered with the Information Commissioner and bound by the Data Protection Act, as well as having the appropriate Professional Indemnity Insurances in place.

Will it be expensive?

Frankly, we have never found this to be a stumbling block to outsourcing. While we have a standard pricing model which is designed to give you an attractive margin on our services, we recognise that you can’t just change your fees to fit our model.

We are happy to look at your existing payroll portfolio, looking at the overall picture to arrive at a mutually satisfactory arrangement.

In addition, consider the true cost of:   

  • Software and maintenance
  • Stationery
  • On-going training & keeping up to date with legislation
  • Time lost on running the payroll
  • Time spent on employee and HMRC issues
  • IT Infrastructure
  • Resilience
  • Disgruntled employees
  • Punitive fines from HMRC and now Pensions Regulator

  • You have a designated client manager familiar with you, your clients and their payroll
